Summer at Windells is one of our favorite pastimes. For the past decade Mt. Hood has been a welcoming home for Saga during the summer months. This summer we packed the Saga truck with Tim Durtschi, McRae Williams and Steve Stepp for Saga Week at Windells.
WELCOME TO OREGON
Just over half half way through the drive a rest stop well suited to stretch the legs.
Steve Stepp knows tricks
Tim Durtschi gets the proper angle
After making the push late into the evening we arrived in Welches, Oregon, our home for the next week. As the sun came up the next day we made our way to Windells Camp for arrival day.
The Concrete Jungle at Windells might be the best skate park in Oregon
Theres also B.O.B. (Biulding Out Back). The indoor skatepark/foam pit/Trampoline zone.

Shortly after arriving we met some OG Saga fans
Birk Irving is a guest pro this week for the Saga session. Watch out for him.

A new addition to Windells this summer is the super tramp.
After signing off for the night we retreated to our abode in Welches ready for the first day on hill. None of us had been on snow for a couple of weeks and were hungry to start sliding around.
The summer of Mt. Hood in all her glory.
The kids are out in full force!
Sometimes a little bank to rail is all you need

McRae took a liking to the Saga side hit real quick
Tim mixes it up with a right 3 critical
Towards the end of the session Birk Irving came hiking up after, what we hear, was a heated jump session. Look for shots tomorrow as we’re taking over the jump.
This is just day 1. The SagaFam is here in at Windells all week so look out for more to come.
