Although lite winds and low snow pack,. Craig and I made it work.
Surprised at how low of a wind you need for snowkiting.
Started out at 12:30 it lulled at 1:30 then picked up at 2:30 for another hour.
Highlight of the day: Light winds but
still had a decent day
TOW: 12:30-1:30 and 2:30-3:30 (2 hours)
Gear: 11M and Burton Hero
Water Conditions: Choppy ice under up to 2 inches of old snow with
6 inch hard packed drifts
Weather: 20+ degrees and mostly bluebird day
Wind: 8-16 MPH from the S
Schooled: Parking the kite and doing a down wind slalom - just like going down hill on a blue run.
