Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

I just got back from vagando in Baja for 3 weeks, so I'd better let the big boss take her turn backcountry skiing tomorrow. I might make it up for a sunset session, looks good!

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Mickey,
Small kites today! I hope to be up there about 2pm. What's your take on the DOW parcel south of the reservoir/kane tract?

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

C'mon Scott, Taylor is the coldest place on record in Colorado. Don't try to convince us that that place is warm and snuggly ha! RMP is closed for the foreseeable future due to 30' deep avy debris on the highway. I have work tomorrow in Norwood so I'm gonna hit the Reservoir Tract at Miramaui again....

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Nice reports guys! I too had a really great time at Miramonte this week. I had my pup with me so I didn't venture out way north. Bummer that the east side hill is closed now, gliding off that was the best part! I agree, I wish the wind was that nice in the liquid season. Glickster, that pic is amazi...

Re: Making Turns?

Hey Justin, 1. Yes you can make turns but you're onto the line tension requirement. It's like wave kiting so there is a relationship between your direction and the wind direction and wind speed. If it's really windy you can crank nice big powder-slashing jibe-style turns while keeping plenty of powe...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Thanks for sharing the great stoke that folks are getting in around the state. I love hearing about it. It's great that we are a self-policing group, for the most part. Most normal folks don't even understand what the heck we are doing out there on the snow. Many are intrigued but some may be mortif...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

I love seeing everyone's adventures, this is great! Mickey I'm jealous of those Miramaui shots. The planets have not aligned to get me over there yet. I also got out Saturday with some fresh meat: Ezra just moved here from the Eastern Time Zone and is now officially a kiteskier after a successful al...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Blowing like stink means 9m, for me. Blowing like stink means I'll probably have a couple of pucker moments when I might suck in the ass end of my Gore-tex shell pants while riding out a short squall. But it's worth it to be lit up all day! Anything west will be good. Bay of chickens was totally fro...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Br44, miramaui is our euphemistic moniker for miramonte reservoir south of norwood. Chris, I'll bet that Blue Mesa will blow like stink tomorrow. Could be a good day to park at the dam and do a downwinder damn near all the way to Gunny, then hitch back. Scott, I too look forward to hearing about you...
