Just saw there is a snow fair in Denver January 26-29 2017 and Nobile is one of the exhibitors.

Are there more kite brands attending?

Dave,
Any chance that you'll be heading west after Dillon? I'd love to check out the new stuff if you're passing through SW Colorado...

I'd be up for a Snow Mesa fest with lots of Ozone kites to try. I would be glad to get the kites and skiers up to the top with my sleds! Good chance for Matt to try a foil again!! And have some of the western Colorado kiters to meet the Ozone rep.
Any interest??

The wind has been dead most of the season on Lake Dillon.

Interest is never the issue- it seems like time is what I am always short on. The trip is a bit of a tactical strike so unfortunately I'm not going to traveling much further west. Where is Snow Mesa? I'd love to get in a winter worthy rig and hit up some new (for me) spots. I know Dillon hasn't really been on yet this season, but I think recently it has started to click. We are hoping to get snow industry and media from the SIA show to check out snow kiting to see what it is all about.

If there is enough interest in a demos we could probably arrange a few kites through Anton@ Colorado Kite Force. The demos are headed to the Montana Snow Kite Rodeo 3rd weekend in Feb then to the Big Horns @ the Wyoming High Country Lodge for most of March.

If you want to ride on Lake Dillon remember to bring some big kites. I've only used my 18m this season on the lake, and only have had about 2 to 3 sessions where it picked up for maybe 30 min.

They also make some rad skis and snowboards outside of kiting gear.
