2012/2013 snowkiting season kick off in France.

Postby Boulgakow » Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:36 pm

Hi all.

On last september 27th, from the valley we saw the summits completely covered of snow.
On the webcam as well :-)
So we got motivated to drive to the pass "Col du Sabot", about 1.900m elevation.
Unfortunately, once on the spot, the snowpack was really thin and that was more grass than snow.
Anyway, we had a cool session.
Kiting uphill with gentle wind and across soft terrain.
Only grass, no stone here.
Reaching the summits around.
Coming down back with smooth hill-gliding.
Well, cool feeling for this first session of the snowkiting season.
Sorry, this is not the best one of the century ;-)
You can read the report here :
