Announcing the 2012 Tug Hill Snow Kite Rally MLK Weekend, Jan 14th to the 16th
This will be our 5th year hosting kiters from all over the country to come explore what is called the Skyline of the east. Getting over 300 inches of snow on average per year and home to the Maple Ridge Wind Farm, the largest wind farm east of the Mississippi. This is some of the best and consistent snowkiting that can be had in the Northeast proving it isn't necessary to go West to enjoy epic snow kiting. Over the past 5 years hundreds of kiters have come to our festival and it keeps growing.
This year is poised to be the biggest year yet! We will have more sites open than ever with literally 100's of acres of open terrain to explore. We have Jelly Fish Boards, Epic Kites, and Ozone signed on bringing demo's, team riders and giveaways and other companies soon to be announced. Lesson's will be available as well as free into clinics with trainer kites. Besides three days of endless terrain and demo's we will also host a post session party Saturday night complete with pictures and footage from the days riding, a raffle with swag donated by our sponsors, and most importantly a chance to meet fellow kiters and party the night away! This is going to be a great event for both new kiters and seasoned wind addicts a like. There is also plenty of other winter activities to do from snowboarding and cross country skiing to snowmobiling and much more so bring the family and the none kiters along to experience this great location.
