The Line Traveling Circus crew was at Mt. Hood’s Windells Camp for Session 5 recently, and it was a party. The Windells Diggers went all out this session, building a really creative park that included a bunch of the summer’s best rails and jibs: a flat rail to stair set; a pole jam to down rail line on the side of the big jump; and a T made out of tubes.
Andy Perry, Will Wesson and Josh Malczyk were lapping the park, laying down some crazy maneuvers and turning campers’ heads. Meanwhile, LJ Strenio and Eric Olson destroyed the big jump. Then there was Jeff Curry, who was destroying every jump and rail he hit. The whole team was killing it and making sure the campers were in on the action as well. Campers lapped the hill with the Line team, in addition to playing games of knockout, ski trivia, and even product races.
Tom Wallisch was at camp this session, too, lapping the park and testing out new Scott USA skis. You will see him here all Session 6 as well. Along with Wallisch, Mike Hornbeck throwing down some impressive tricks with ease. Basically, the park was packed with amazing skiers. The women’s and men’s Association of Freeskiing Professionals champs, Devin Logan and Gus Kenworthy, respectively, were there showing their skills in the park too.
Last but not least at Windells this past session was the double cork show. Every single double was thrown down on the big jump. The whole week, both pros and campers were slaying it, having a good time, all while going upside down twice. Some people took some diggers, and some were sticking tricks effortlessly, but everyone was having fun. Next up is Session 6, which is sure to be fun, with Surface Skis and Skullcandy hosting.
