Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

So ended up hitting Guanella Pass on Friday - wind forecast was looking really solid like high teens gusting to high 30's straight from the west. Road was supposed to be open but unfortunately was still closed by the time I arrived. Based on Avy forecast and family constraints, I wanted to be up the...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Matt, I would love to check out your neck of the woods sometime. I'll have to see if maybe I could coerce some of my family to come out. It would help if there were other kiddos there. As for this week, I think I am going to try to check out Guanella Pass on Friday. With any luck, they should have t...

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: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Zack, Flat Tops look it has a lot of potential. So are you approaching from the S side of Deep Creek?

I might be checking out Hoosier Pass with a couple of buddies tomorrow - will let you know how it goes if I do...

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.
