Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Oh man, me and a buddy almost went to Guanella on Saturday, but every winter picture I looked at online seemed pretty scraggly and like it never really fills in that well. From your picture, it looks great though! Bummer we missed each other. Coverage in the mountains is great right now, I'm not sur...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Anthony, sounds like you are getting in some great kiting this year. Eventually I need to make it over there - thanks for your offers of hospitality. Hit up Hoosier Pass today - snow wasn't great and pretty packed from the high winds the night before. There is a nice base forming though, especially ...

Re: recommendation snow kite

Hq kites any good? Rush 300 Trainer and apex hq4 8/11m? So yes, I'm a big fan of the Apex as a 1st kite. They are a lot of kite for the money. My general advice to people is to get the 5.5m to learn on, and then keep it around for high wind days. 8m would also be an option. I still use my 5.5m Apex...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Matt, I think you're right. When I was doing my research, all I saw was the Arapaho National Forest.

Thanks for the heads up.

Matt - how are snow condition in your neck of the woods?

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Had a really nice session at Hoosier Pass on Saturday with my buddy Aaron. With about 6" of fresh snow, it was the best snow conditions I've had all year. Winds were better than average, around 14G28mph - a little holey but not punchy. I was on an 8m, my buddy was riding a 7m and having a blast doin...
