noah ,

Any snowkiting yet out there yet? We have been getting snow at elevation which means you must be roaming in it.

Alas, no snowkiting yet...

Above normal temps and significant precip is not penetrating into the Rockies.

Still waiting for my first session.

Ok my cabins booked! Could you arrange for an Ozone gear demo at this event? We're in the market for a quiver.

I'd think OR, WA, CA folks could kite their way across S. Idaho as webcams along the way look like all-time conditions for snow cover. That way here in MT too! Barring some freakish weather event conditions should be good-as-it-gets for the Rodeo.

So Jackson hot springs lodge just called and said they're closing for the weekend due to "a major maintenance problem". They also said everything in the area is booked. Im already on the road heading that way thinking about renting an rv somewhere, what are other people doing? Any ideas?

I had an awesome time and will be going back next year for sure.

Stopped at the goldmines Thursday night then craters of the moons Friday. Kited Big hole pass Saturday and Sunday.

The poker run was fun to do. The freestyle comp was fun to watch and the winduro looked like a challenge.

Soaked in hot springs each night hanging out with the other kiters having cocktails.

Met a ton of cool people stayed in an awesome lodge.

Here are a few pictures.
