Re: Oneida lake and Tug hill conditions

Oneida lake at Sylvan beach is 6-8" ice , 2-5 " hardpack snow on most of it with scatered bare ice patches that are very rough cobble stone like(big cobblestone). Flew there yesterday. Beware at the inlet of the canal and 2miles out had open water last Sunday but may well be ok by tomorrow.

There are elements of skill and thrill in kiting that are innate passions in some people that don't just evaporate at a certain age. In reading the other articles associated with the p...

Re: Saratoga Springs snowkite fly in Feb 18-19

Looks like conditions will be smooth ice. Skis , skates , buggies with blades will do very well. Sharp edges will be a must (I have an edge tool to share). I'm bringing 2 buggies on blades, 2 snowspider sleds, 1 Cockroach (skateboard with a seat and blades) and misc skis , skates , boots. Fast flyin...

Re: Lake George winter

Very nice. That is some glass!! We've been flying on smooth ice but its got just enough texture to hold an edge.
