Slide of the Month Extra: Philmont Chase Cow Camp


March 2024

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont/Bill Macfarlane

Chase Cow Camp was built in 2019 to replace Dean Cow camp (lost in the 2018 Ute Park fire) and features climbing and repelling. It also is the only camp to feature bouldering great for those who are afraid of heights.

I so like the contrast of smooth and rough like in this slide. Carved from pallet pine, the rocks are carved in chip style and the climber is sanded smooth. I decided to do the sky as a sanded chip style. The slide is painted with hobby paints and the lettering/heart are done with waterslide paper. A couple coats of poly finish the slide off
