Snow Rodeo Cancelled. Probably be some of us still out, but the ice surface is not well snow covered. Probably fine on skis after the temp warms a bit. Sunday is supposed to hit 50 degrees.
The Snow Rodeo has been Cancelled.....
Due to Hockey-Like Conditions The Snow Rodeo has Been Cancelled
Due to icy conditions with no snow, we have decided to pull the plug on the 2nd attempted running of The Snow Rodeo. Reports from the lake this morning were no snow, gray solid ice, and warming temps with evening freezes. This means only more ice in the future. With these conditions in mind and also for the safety of the participants, we have decided to cancel the event to save everyone a frustrating and potentially punishing weekend. We apologize for any inconveneince this may have caused. If you have signed up for lessons with us for Saturday, please call our booking office at 866-REAL-KITE so we can reschedule your lesson.
Lake Champlain normally provides excellent conditions for snow kiteboarding with wide open space and consistent breeze. The locals are very friendly and there are often 10 or so riding every day when the conditions are good. According to the locals, this year saw storms tracking further south, which left their normally snowy playground starved of precipitation. We can only hope for better conditions for the rest of this month and next year.
Respects to the Champlain Crew ! We'll see you guys in Hatteras this spring !
