Took a trip up to the tug hill kite fest this weekend, and spent saturday seeing some old friends a riding a bit, southerly winds weren't optimal, and despite the large size of the fields they filled up with kiters pretty quick, a little to crowded for my liking, but fun none-the-less.

Soooo, I decided to head down to Oneida Lake on Sunday with some friends and we had a great day. Thick powder as you can see in the video, probably 18". We arrived at 10:00 to NO WIND, nuts, but the forecast was calling for the good stuff. So we waited around and things started to build by 11:30 or so. Once up and rolling the wind really picked up and I was nicely powered on the Montana 9.5.

Crazy weather day, Sunny bluebird to snowy squall, on and off, all afternoon but the wind was fairly consistent and smooth. At 2:30 a BIG one rolled in and visibility on the lake dropped to virtually zero and everybody packed it in. Perfect timing because my legs were shot from riding in thick beautiful pow....

I'm going to be in VT/NH this weekend doing some untied (no wind needed) boarding with some friends.

But I imagine if the wind is blowing that people will be out riding. For the locals.....did you get any of the sleet/freezing rain we did in albany? Did it ruin the sweet base out there, or did you just get more snow?

Dave I actually found your video's the other night. Some good stuff out on the water! I'm afraid that's the next step for me, sell the sailboat and buy some kites with the cash!

I was on Onondaga lake last evening flying on hard pack , deep soft , and big rough razorback , about 2/3 snow cover 1/3 hardwater. Oneida has had more snow and holds up better , you should see hard pack and soft with some gentle drifting.

In case you need to find some snow covered Ice. lake George has between 3-4 inches of hard pack on top of 8-12 inches of ice. The wind is out of the SW at 10-18 mph on Saturday. Should be a great weekend. You may find a little slush underneath on the south end due to large snow drifts.
