Good to hear from you folks and nice footage. Yes we have lots of snow up on the Tug Hill and hopefully we will be able to fly this weekend. The Tug Hill event this year will be the weekend of January 31st and Feb 1st. We are still working on more sites to fly at also. Jan

First post here :bye:

I would like to head out to Tug Hill this weekend. Any local riders out there I can hook up with? It's 6 hour drive for me so would like to make sure the condition is good for snowkiting before I leave my place. Thanks. - Brian

Damn, The Tug really is a snow catcher. Looks like there is more snow in the east than there is in the west as this December kicks off. Somebody better get some freshies there, if I was free this weekend and closer, I would definitely be there myself. Maybe next month :naughty:
