Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Mickey that look like an amazing spot, nice work! My afternoon work break today was a little more pedestrian but a lot of lit powered fun still.

Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

One last plug for advice. Heading to Norway in 2 weeks! Any word about general snowpack? Wondering if I should take beacon-shovel-probe for pre-race day adventures?

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Anthony, how was the scouting mission yesterday? Ironton was really flukey. The warm temps and sun are starting to take a beating on the lower elevation snow conditions. No storms in the forecast at all.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Anthony We should have have a posse up there by noon. Forecast looks really good today. Stinking Parker already tracked it up yesterday on his 17m. Point forecasts are calling for gusts in the 90s tomorrow so git it now

Re: Winter Park Snowkiting spots

Hey Mossy, I was just up there last weekend at the in-laws. I've kited NW winds right in town between WP and Frazer on the west side of the highway inside a XC loop. Snow is so-so currently. There is a lot of cool alpine topography unfortunately it's all heavily scoured. Lake Granby is probably the ...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Gang, Winds look good this weekend both days for Lizard Head. Snow should be great! Light, sunny, warm Saturday and maybe a little rowdy Sunday. JR is rolling through. It would be fun to get a posse out there, maybe even a race. Who's in? I'll show up with kids, sleds, cooler, grill, hot dogs.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Zach, I would say that if you're staying at the Opus hut, you should already consider yourself lucky! Bring kites! Forecast is for south winds so there should be spots around to catch wind but it'll be mostly steep right near Bob's hut. Ophir Pass itself is a small area aligned east-west. We nor...

Re: tube vs foil in light wind

Here we go again. Try searching this topic as it's been discussed ad nauseum with zealots on both sides of the debate. I have shitty quality light wind conditions here and prefer lightweight big tube kites (15m+) that won't tangle and bowtie. If you have steady winds others will tell you that a high...

Re: Hydrofoiling has ruined me a bit.

Same thing goes for me, but stick mountain snowkiting in place of foiling. It's hard to go back to a 4 month season of survival-type water conditions after 8 months of powder on 20 degree slopes in the alpine. Now, come summer, I'm a lot more motivated to toss the kids and some beers in the raft and...
