So far we have the blessing of the Park service to kite on the lakes in Glacier National Park in Northwestern Montana. Thermal conditions along with a prevailing westerly flow bring great winds on those hot days when everywhere else is shut off.
End of july this year a professional photographer traveling through Glacier just happened to see Gary Wolf and Brian Literski from the roadside at the east end of St Mary's lake in the park.
Kiting there is pretty special when you look around and see the mountains.
Tony, the photographer sent us these photos for the use of the kiting community.
If you wish to use any of them just acknowledge the source. info about his business is in the link.

Looks like it's been a while since this post but in case somebody is listening... I'm headed to Glacier Park tomorrow. What are the chances that I can kite out there?

Things have changed an a permit is required to kite in glacier. Along with the reserve system to get in the park I'd say slim chance but worth a try. Do not kite without checking in and getting the appropriate permit.
