Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Back-to-back great days this weekend. Saturday was steady light wind in knee deep untracked powder at Lizard head with Mickey and Anthony. Heavy lines at the lifts in Telluride meanwhile we had LH all to ourselves. Sunday, unbelievably, was even better above treeline on RMP with Lorne and Parker. Li...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Gang, I'll be out in Frazier next weekend with family. I have a hall pass for afternoon of January 13 and all day 14. Any easterners/northerners who want to get out? I'd love to check out some cool alpine spots. Cheers, Matt

Re: Flite sizing

Alford, I'm 90 kg and I love the 12m,17m Flite combo. You ought to be able to hold down the 12m til it's really honkin. 17m bar pressure is light. I thank Todd at OR for recently taking the time on the phone to walk me through the bridle lock mod.

Re: When is "Big" too big?

Here we go again with all the foil light wind BS (respectfully, in my opinion). A lot has to do with the thing attached to the BOTTOM end of the lines (the pilot). I never have an issue hindenburging my heavy LEI. I see lots of foils laying in piles as I go by. No doubt Speeds, etc are amazing when ...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

The San Juans are open for business. Lizard Head, Macmillan, and Crystal Res all have good coverage. A few rocks here and there to look out for.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Zach, FTs sounds like a good mission. I've camped up there above Dotsero in the summer and remember thinking that the kite potential seems great. Pencil me in for a backcountry outing (but I don't have a sled). Cheers, Matt

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Saul,
I might try to make it to skyline, but we're lucky to have good terrain right here in the San Juans. I live in Ridgway, CO.

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Saul, I grew up in NW Ohio, and now I live in Colorado. So, please consider yourself invited to come out to train any time this winter, I have a crash pad for you. I did Ragnarok year before last and loved it. It was clear that a lot of people didn't know how to deal with the hills. Dropping down fr...

Anthony's not kidding! There's a bona fide base already on Grand Mesa. Pretty nice for October. So excited that liquid season is behind us. Anyone else out there got some early season treasures?
