Cap'n don't go letting Mother Nature off the hook now! Just enough coverage/softness for good riding still but we're as powder ravenous as anyone else! Apparently the pro forecasters are saying it could be a great spring. Fingers are crossed, doing funny dances to the moisture gods. Anything but early season water kiting-

My buddy and I flew in from San Francisco and are planning to snowkite the next two days, Sunday and Monday. We're in park city now and it's a bit warm.. Does skyline have any usable snow cover? We've never been there as well, but have experience snow kiting. Just wondering what spot to go if there's options. We've also got 12m's and 16m thanks!

The coverage at Skyline is excellent. Strawberry is in bad shape due to warm temps.

Forecast looks good for Monday right now. 12 & 16 should be good.

Skyline still has good coverage. I kiter there yesterday. Surface is hard pack. We have had a few little storms, but nothing good in awhile and not much in the 10 day. :(

Last year was poor. This year is epic. Snowpack is 170% of normal. Best year, I have seen in the past 15 winters of Snowkiting.
