I'm with AJ on the migration. Looks like I'll have to take the entire month of Febuary off this year. Can't wait to see the event.

Here is the latest SuperFly Open info, or visit http://www.superflyopen.com. Presented by Best Kiteboarding and Utah Kite Addiction.

Registration. The event registration will cost $30. This includes an event t-shirt and 3 snowkite passes to Powder Mountain. The snowkite pass allows the participant access to Powder Mountain’s snowkite area, to the Sunrise lift, and one ride on the Hidden Lake Chairlift. If there is no wind, to much wind, to much snow, whatever, participants can redeem their snowkite pass at anytime for $30 off a full or half day all area ski lift ticket. Look for online registration in the next couple of weeks with some added pre-registration incentive.

Suunto Challenge. Suunto will be onsite Friday and Saturday leading the Suunto Challenge. During the challenge, you can take one of their ten GPS watches out for an hour to digitally log your snowkite session. After that hour, Suunto will instantaneously download your data to a laptop. Suunto will be giving two Suunto watches away as prizes for longest recorded distance and fastest recorded speed during the Suunto Challenge. The X9i wristop computer ($500 retail) is also a watch, GPS navigator, altimeter, barometer, and compass. After a long day of snowkiting, you can download your session directly to Google Earth and share with all your buddies. Visit Suunto.com for more information.

16 Passenger Snowcat. We’ve leased Powder Mountain’s passenger snowcat for Saturday and Sunday to haul participants from the main kiting area out to one of the backcountry kite areas. This area is big and wide open. A little bit of wind and luck will provide for a big backcountry snowkite experience.

Terrain Park. We’ve purchased 68’ of ski-resort-grade sliders from KAB Rails. These include a 20’ straight slider for us mere mortals, and a 48’ battleship type slider designed by Best snowkite rider, Jacob B. Powder Mountain snowcats will start moving snow a few weeks prior to the event to help build additional snow features for the terrain park and kitercross route weather and snow permitting.

Opening Ceremony at Rumors. We were hoping to save the Best Bash for last, but because of the risqué Best Girl Model Search and contest, we were inclined to move the Best Bash to Rumors Lounge at the Ben Lomond Hotel in Ogden on Friday night. These guys now how to put on a party and locals are still talking about the Pray For Snow party they put on this fall with multiple projection screens, live music, and man made snow falling from the ceiling. This evening will be a snowkite night to remember. The Best Model Contest will be like no other. This aint your beach variety Best girl contest, these ladies are local, and will be showing off some of the latest winter apparel, Best apparel, and an occasional Best logo tattoo. Look out Lange Girls.

Award Ceremony. Wolf Creek Resort is proud to host the SuperFly award ceremony, presentations, and the after ceremony “atmosphereâ€Â

The snow took its time covering the pow mow snowkiting area during the month of December but its finally here and in good condition. Powder Mountain has received 6 feet of snow since just before Christmas. The storm is clearing with more on the way. Things are looking good for the SuperFly Open. Hope to see you there.
