Back to Back – Gravelly Range & Centennial Range, Montana

Back to Back Days – Gravelly Range & Centennial Range, Montana Of the many snow kite spots that I have visited in the last dozen years, I got to return to two of my favorites during back to back days last week. Both spots offer superb mountain terrain, a clean fetch, abundant snow and immense solitu...

Soft, soft snow - Bald Mountain - Big Horns

Another SuperFunKiteDay in the Biggies! Rolled out of the Wyoming High Country Lodge at 9 and headed over to Baldy’s SW side. Mmmm, no wind? So I cranked up the sled and ran over to the SE side: 15mph! Launched the 15m Summit and was good to go. Wind ramped up progressively and after a couple hours ...

Mid-March in the Big Horn Mtns, Wyoming

The northern Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming proved again why they are a favorite snowkite destination. With a variety of terrain, a solid snowpack, steady west winds, abundant sunshine and easy access I could not have asked for a better combination to start my mid-March weekend. While it is true back...

Snowshoe Pass, Montana

With sleds, kites and a topo map we headed south up the West Fork of the Madison River 15 miles to check out a new area, Snowshoe Pass. We have kited all around this area for the past few years and thought that this spot would have potential. Sure enough, we found great terrain, spectacular views an...

The Heart of Winter

With the last wind and snow episode in the Northern Rockies, snowkiters around the region know that we are in the heart of winter. Storm kiting has been superb. Post-storm sunny kite days have been superb. Every day that we have been out, we have been finding ballroom smooth surfaces of either dry p...

Big Horn Snowkite Summit Recap: The Future of Snowkiting

Never before in the United States has the announcement of a snowkite event created so much interest in so short a period of time. The idea was to host a week of snowkiting, on-snow instruction, kite demos and evening seminars at a backcountry lodge in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. The brainchi...

Re: Best kite for touring/ascending?

Rasmus, if you want to buy a foil, I would suggest the 13m Frenzy. The Frenzy has a huge range, as does the Summit. The Frenzy is very stable and user friendly as well. The Summit offers more performance but it requires slightly more bar input to achieve that performance. With either kite you can cl...
