made snowkite trip to NZ and Australia.
Snowkiting in Australia.
I was there Sep 26 -Oct3. All days were windy. Wind range was one day 12mph , two days 40mph and all rest about 20mph.
Lift up at Thredbo resort by Kosciouszko Express 37aud. It's better to take T-bar also but it will cost you much more. Walk right to valley.If you don't want to kite very strong turbulence walk up about 1 mile to pass. The wind becomes much better and less about 25%. The terrain is incredible by scale and variety of landscape.
I used Ozone Access 6m for kiting in rock teethes with huge turbulence and Hyperlink 9m for more safe areas or in wind shadows. Kited several times to the summit of Mt Kosciouszko 2228m by different routes and along Snowy River.
Locals are very friendly. The FB group is Kosi kiters.
