Name:

Justin Norman

Nickname:

JNorm

Where are you from?

I was born in Eugene, OR. I currently live in Bend, OR.

How many years have you been digging for Windells?

I have been digging for Windells for the past two summers. I worked as a member of the kitchen crew the year before. This is my third summer at Windells and my seventh summer at Hood!

Why do you do it?

I love the atmosphere up here on the Mt. Hood glacier, and the riding is real progressional.

What's your favorite part of camp?

I dig the warm tea in the mornings, earl grey for sure. I'm trying to get more into the paint ball scene.

Whats your favorite part about being on hill?

My favorite part about being on hill is working hard with by brothers, the digger crew and making all the campers' dreams come true while shredding hard every damn day.

What has been your best experience working as a digger?

Getting Chase Weaver as a boss and smooth sailing.

What has been your worst experience working as a digger?

My worst experience as a digger was wearing all cotton, getting soaked through and having to spend the entire day miserable.

Doesn't sound too bad. What would you be doing if you weren't at camp for the summer?

Stacking chedda working in the outdoors in Bend. Its a good home base.

Tell me about Ark Life.

I sleep in the outdooors and breathe fresh air.
