A Break from the Grind – Level 1 Takeover Week at Windells

I’ve been working for a contractor since my ski season ended building decks, fences, gazebos and digging a lot of holes.  It’s hard work, but at least I’m outside and working on my tan.

I received an email from the boys at Level 1 Productions stating they had a takeover week at Windells and if anyone was interested in being there.  I probably ended up being the first to jump on that.  So, before I knew it, I was hopping on a plane to Oregon to meet up with Tim McChesney and Will Berman.

It was hands down one of the best summer weeks of my life.  Windells was a great host, giving us access to the lane, a house to crash in and a chauffer/van for the week.  The weather for the week was also perfect, which made the vibes even better.  Windells has its own private t-bar, so the amount of laps you get while skiing is unreal!  As for off-hill, the camp base is a full skate park and there is always something going down.  It was a great break from working in the summer.  I can’t wait to get back on the snow again this winter!
