Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Man, no kidding. The only snow I've seen this year is in post cards. So jealous. Way to get after it Anthony; sounds like a blast.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Anthony, do you have a lat/long for the lake so I could take a look at it on Google Earth. Unfortunately I have other family stuff going on today so won't be able to make it up there this time, but would love to check it out at some point.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Awesome Anthony, sounds like you're having fun over there. Ya, the Zeek is a low wind powerhouse - quite a bit of pull in 6kts. Honestly, I would probably recommend the 18m Matrixx though (that's the big purple kite you might have seen in some of my posts) - it's a little more user friendly and make...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hit up Rabbit Ears today. Oodles of powder up there, best snow conditions I've had in a long, long time. Winds were a bit patchy though.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Saturday me and my buddy Aaron took a chance on Hoosier Pass, hoping the small storm from the night before might make it rideable. Expectations were pretty low but we did get rewarded with a few inches of blow powder and ended up having a pretty good time. Winds were pretty gusty and a bit tricky si...

Re: Advice for buying 1st Foil Kite

HQ had a good start to the Matrixx series, but then they dummed down the kite in the next version. They did that with the Montana series too - Good kites in mid versions, then beginner kites with the same name later. HQ has done an excellent job with the latest version of the Matrixx (Matrixx III)....

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

I kited Hoosier Pass this weekend - Hoosier was much more windblown and Icy and scarce than I'd hoped w/ freezing fog. Dropped down to Dillon Res afterwards and was able to salvage a nice lightwind session down there. Dillon had about a half inch of snow on top of ice/frozen corn. FWIW, Anton thinks...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Anthony - sounds like fun! I've got two weeks off work 20 - 30 March and am looking to make a 3-day trip out west to check out some of the spots out there like Lizard Head and Grand Mesa. Let's keep in touch.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

You're killing me Matt. If I didn't have family obligations, I'd really consider driving out. I've got a break coming the last two weeks of March and will be looking for an excuse the check out some of more Western CO spots - maybe we can find a date to meet up. I would love to check out Lizzard Hea...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Man, it looks like you guys have been having some great conditions out west. PDCK - those pictures deserve to be hung on a wall - awesome!

I've been having some great days out and about the Fairplay area the last couple of weeks as well. Turning out to be a great winter!
