When: Feb 22nd-24th, Freeride all weekend, (PBR–during conducive conditions)
Where: Fairfield, Idaho - Malcomson Snowpark and beyond!
What: 1st Annual Prairie Blow-out Rally and Hill City Saloon after bon-fire party Saturday Feb 23rd wind or no wind, rain or shine!
Why: In Lou of the annual Snowkite Soldier’s postponement, friends of the Malcomson Snowpark are organizing the first annual Prairie Blowout Rally (PBR). Which involves a 15-mile challenge course navigating though some of Idaho’s most vast and difficult snowkite terrain. Come out and challenge yourself against kiters, topographical decisions, and a “3hr Death Clock”. Two courses will be set: Nobody loses, and everybody wins.
Suggest Donations: $13.00 includes free PBR Sticker - 100% (minus snowmobile fuel support) will be donated to the Mountain Home Snowmobile/Snowkite Club. They help insure Elmore County plow sno-parks and turnouts, bathrooms services, and provide firewood for local warming huts.
We hope to see the return of Monty and Trisha’s Snowkite Soldiers in 2014, in the mean time we will keep the stoke alive and kick’in on the Camas Prairie this year!
“Just remember; it’s a long wayyyys home when your post-holinnn!”
Official final update: As the promoter, I want to clarify that the PBR event has been cancelled due to lack of snowpack. If you are seeking powder snowkiting, I suggest other places such as WY, UT, MT. Please update your "Going" status if you have changed your mind to not attend. I'd like to keep the small town informed of how many people to expect. Otherwise we will drink the town dry.
As of today we have firm riding conditions, with a dusting of new snow. Tuesday's forecast could bring a few more inches, making conditions worthwhile.
For those who are still coming, we will session the giant kicker and BBQ afterwards, and have a small gathering at the SMR. In other words we will make the best out of it!
Thank you, and hope to see you on the snow this upcoming weekend.
