One small step for the US Gov.'t... one giant leap for Snowkiter kind.

Years in the making and not a moment too soon... what it means is recognition for kiters that we are an official 'user group' that is recognized by the powers that be. And so far they like us. :thumb:

There is a giant log Kiosk... (railslide when it piles up :naughty: ) and as of last week there are 3 posters welcoming area users to Skyline, and offering safety info, Avalanche precautions and a heading to work together for mountain safety. I liked it.

The first rule is awesome, and aimed at keeping Snowkiters safe from Snowmobilers... it states "roll up your lines once your kite hits the ground." Simple and self regulating.

Check out the images below.

Windzup,
Brian Schenck

How long before "Avelancheing" gets acknowledged as a legitimate discipline?

Trigger and surf...
