Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Hey Gang, I'll be out in Frazier next weekend with family. I have a hall pass for afternoon of January 13 and all day 14. Any easterners/northerners who want to get out? I'd love to check out some cool alpine spots. Cheers, Matt

Re: Flite sizing

Alford, I'm 90 kg and I love the 12m,17m Flite combo. You ought to be able to hold down the 12m til it's really honkin. 17m bar pressure is light. I thank Todd at OR for recently taking the time on the phone to walk me through the bridle lock mod.

Re: When is "Big" too big?

Here we go again with all the foil light wind BS (respectfully, in my opinion). A lot has to do with the thing attached to the BOTTOM end of the lines (the pilot). I never have an issue hindenburging my heavy LEI. I see lots of foils laying in piles as I go by. No doubt Speeds, etc are amazing when ...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

The San Juans are open for business. Lizard Head, Macmillan, and Crystal Res all have good coverage. A few rocks here and there to look out for.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Zach, FTs sounds like a good mission. I've camped up there above Dotsero in the summer and remember thinking that the kite potential seems great. Pencil me in for a backcountry outing (but I don't have a sled). Cheers, Matt

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Saul,
I might try to make it to skyline, but we're lucky to have good terrain right here in the San Juans. I live in Ridgway, CO.

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Saul, I grew up in NW Ohio, and now I live in Colorado. So, please consider yourself invited to come out to train any time this winter, I have a crash pad for you. I did Ragnarok year before last and loved it. It was clear that a lot of people didn't know how to deal with the hills. Dropping down fr...

Anthony's not kidding! There's a bona fide base already on Grand Mesa. Pretty nice for October. So excited that liquid season is behind us. Anyone else out there got some early season treasures?

Re: Bar too far away

I can't be bothered reading the entire thread, but, in case someone hasn't mentioned it already, the answer is obvious. Save the walk or the drive to your local and get yourself a home bar. The small ones are not that expensive. Search 'home bar' on eBay. There's a nice one listed right at the mome...
