Yeah, I would if I could too. Thanks for the heads up though Scott. Would love to another time.

Anthony: It looks like snow through the weekend, but let's keep an eye on the weather, maybe the first of next week if the sun comes out. White out on Snow Mesa isn't much fun!

Started Saturday off with a run off the east Face of Argentine Peak, followed by east face of Squaretop. Got a nice kite session (10m Access) in on Guanella Pass on the way out. Sawtooth Ridge and 14er Bierstadt (right) in photo background. And yes, I was considering trying to kite up Bierstadt but concern over damage to life, limb, kite and skis kept me kiting in circles on the flats. This is a pretty good spot if you don't mind dodging a willow or two, but it doesn't fill in this much every year.

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 sure its an average year.

Shoot in another week, you'll be able to drive all the way up to the top. I would love to check it out. What size kite were you on?

So many kite spots, so little time.........

Snow Mesa on Thursday the 16th looks good to me. Anyone else?
