oh yes yes... IT MUST BE SAID!!! that because of my time out west and how easy it REALLY IS!! to get out kiting above treeline and go up and down big slopes....I felt and feel more comfortable here in NH. SO, I learned out west and then applied that learning to the east. Thanks everyone out there !
Also, to be clear you dont have to ice or technical snow climb to get to all spots,...one area is a 35-60 minute ski uphill to access the goods (not this year). But other areas are really all about the wind direction and where the snow has collected.
I hope to be out there at the end of March and show you guys the IKON kites! they are awsome backcountry machines!
