Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

Hey Big cane, Thanks, I appreciate your perspective. I'll grab the line extensions and get the legs and lungs in shape. It's going to be tough to not head way way out there into the back of beyond if the snow is good and the wind is blowing! I'd better bring enough gear for a late night skin back...

Re: SIA 2017 (Snow Fair Denver January 2017)

Dave,
Any chance that you'll be heading west after Dillon? I'd love to check out the new stuff if you're passing through SW Colorado...

Looking for any tips to both be relatively competitive on the course and also make the most out of the week in what looks like an amazing white playground. Specifically, 1.) what to expect for spring snow cond...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

JR! It would be great to see you on this lap. I am committed to helping out at the varsity climbing comp on Saturday but keep me posted for what Sunday might bring. George and I got signed up for the Ragnarok race in April so blasting across Snow Mesa could be some good training-

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey mountainkiter, I have work in Telluride on Thursday and might try to get in a SW wind session on LH. The forecast looks lackluster forh LH this weekend, but as you say, it will change. I'll try to remember to give you a shout if I see any thing more promising. Maybe a better chance at higher ele...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Sorry, I can't give a good comment about Utah winds. Probably just gotta go and try it. I rarely fly anything smaller than a 9m here as it's usually horrible whiteout by then. We had a great day Sunday on RMP with good 12m SW winds, flat light, and just enough soft snow in pockets to find safe place...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Anthony, now you have burden of keeping your area all tracked up all the time. That way the sled heads will move on to other spots further abroad. This can be a tough assignment.

Hoping to get up to RMP tomorrow after a month at sea level.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Good N thermal winds yesterday at Lizard Head right up to sunset. About 16" coverage making everything rideable. Still punchy in the bushes.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Regarding Grand Mesa, I think Anthony has nailed it. From my attempts to kite there, there are plenty of open-ish areas but enough surrounding trees to distort winds. Winds tend to be lighter at GM than Red Mountain Pass for instance. I think this is due in part to the relatively lower elevation. I ...
