Mt. Hood, OR (Friday, August 6, 2004) - Windell's Snowboard Camp in Mt. Hood, Ore., has partnered with U.S. Snowboarding, the national governing body for Olympic snowboarding, as the Official Summer Training Camp of U.S. Snowboarding.

The program provides special training opportunities for U.S. Snowboarding riders at Windell's, and establishes a presence for Windell's in the prestigious Chevrolet U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix series, including a national sweepstakes for Windell's camp programs. The partnership is a first for U.S. Snowboarding.

While many current and former U.S. Snowboarding athletes including Hannah Teter, Gretchen Bleiler, Mason and Molly Aguirre, Luke Mitrani, Kelly Clark and Chris Klug have attended the camp, the new program provides unique training programs for U.S. Snowboarding riders going forward. U.S. Snowboarding and its newly established snowboardcross team trained at Windell's on a custom-built snowboardcross track in June. U.S. Snowboarding coaches participated as well. Additionally, look for U.S. Snowboarding's Project Gold riders to be at Windell's in August.

"Windell's has been at the forefront in providing an avenue for progression in the sport and as a stepping stone for riders to make the transition to the next level and beyond," said U.S. Snowboarding Program Director Jeremy Forster. "This is a great opportunity for the athletes in our U.S. Snowboarding program to have access to the facilities at Windell's."

One of the highlights of the program will be a national sweepstakes conducted by U.S. Snowboarding. Riders of all ages - kids and adults - will have a chance to win a full Windell's camp program. The sweepstakes will kickoff with promotion for the Chevrolet U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix this fall.

Established in 1988 by Tim Windell, Windell's Snowboard Camp is located on Mt. Hood, 45 miles east of Portland. Windell's conducts both winter and summer camps for all ages and abilities, providing on-hill and off-hill activities including skate and BMX courses. The main campus sits in 53 forested acres and offers full lodging and meal services for campers.

Not to mention Tim is a great guy! He is all about the kids! The facilities continue to expand at a terrific rate. Tim has put an enormous amount of sweat equity into his camp programs.

Might be a great place to host a "Carve Camp" in the winter too!

The camp compound is made from a sprawling Motel , IE "Lots of Rooms" . Winter camps are still new and building momentum. Time to start a tradition with Windell's as a base camp??

Skates , check out the skate page for sure!! Enjoy!
