Winter Hawks Hockey Game

Tonight the Windells Academy attended the Portland Winter Hawks hockey game in downtown Portland. All the students thought this week went by very slowly and it was good for all of us to get off of campus and have some fun. We showed up fashionably late for the game and got comfortable in our seats just as the second period was starting.

Hockey is an exciting game! We were all jumping out of our seats and cheering for our Portland Winter Hawks to kick some butt. One awesome part about hockey is the fights! We were only at the game for two periods and we experienced three fights! At the end of the match, the Winter Hawks prevailed over the Rockets 3 to 1. Go Winter Hawks!
Kick some ass Winter Hawks!

 Goodnight from me and my homie Felice Pozzi from Switzerland!

First Pow Day of the Season!

Nick Goepper here reporting from Windells. A pacific storm just demolished Oregon and dropped 3+ feet on Mt. Hood! The rain didn't let up at camp the last 4 days but finally a sunny day graced Oregon today! An anxious van ride followed breakfast as we drove to the mountain this morning. The lifts weren't running so we opted to hike a small gully just south of the Timberline parking lot. There was some steep pitch on the sides of the gully which allowed us to build some cool features. My coach Jeff Curry and I built a tree tap/gap over some pines after we were done sessioning the small stepdown we had already built. Building jumps in pow and hitting them is more work then I expected!

Here is a clip of the craziness.

More updates to come as the snow continues to fall at Mt. Hood!

Windells Skatepark: New Feature

The skatepark builders at Windells, AKA Billy Coulon and his crew of builders, are killing it again in the Windells skatepark. They've just added a new feature to our ever expanding skatepark. It consists of a three stair with a handrail in the middle and a bank on one side and a ledge on the other side. They have huge plans this winter for expansion in the park. Can't wait to shred this! Keep up the good work Billy, you're killin it.

Windells Skatepark POV

Hey everyone,

This afternoon I was exempt from school because I got all of my homework caught up for the week so I decided to make this little edit of the skatepark. It was my first time taking any POV (point of view) footage so I hope you enjoy!

Some Old Photos and Music Tracks for Your Enjoyment

My buddy Tad Feiss recently dug out some old photos of me skiing from when I was really young. Thanks Tad! I spent my grom years skiing at Perfect North Slopes Indiana. Perfects has an insanely well maintained terrain park that is lap-able from 8 in the morning until 9 at night every day throughout the winter. If your ever in the Midwest, I encourage you to check it out. Anyways, here are a few photos of mini-Nick.

I've been thumbing through my I-Tunes library and found a couple of crazy dubstep songs that will melt your brain. Here they are...   UKF DUBstep    Quantam DUBstep

I'm going to try to post a lot this week so stay tuned.

New Sponsor!

This past week has been great in Oregon! The lifts opened up at Timberline ski resort for the first day of the Winter season. Even though there isn't any new snow yet, winter is coming! We all have been having a ton of fun lapping the Palmer chairlift. Soon we will be shredding laps on the Stormin Norman chair and hitting the Conaway's terrain park!

Hillcrest Sports is a ski and skate shop about 15 minutes away from Windells in Gresham. They have always hooked us up with ski mounts, boot fitting, ski maintenance, ect. The guys in the shop are super cool and have always been super helpful when we needed their services. They have decided to sponsor me to represent them around the Mt. Hood area. I'm super stoked to officially be on the Hillcrest team and to promote them at Mt. Hood!
