THIS IS SNOWKITING video


Nuff said. :D

Great movies guys! Glad to see I'm not the only one who can't stop thinking about the winter season. We're off to a horrible start here in CO: warm and not a lick of moisture in the 7 day forecast.

10 to 15 degrees above normal in Wisco. Low 60's for highs lately. It's killing me. Open water guys are still enjoying this, but me not so much. It wasn't uncommon around here to have ice by early December years ago. Past couple years not so much. Thanks for the vids....it's all I have to get my fix until the cold gets here.

Not since I left Whistler almost 30 years ago. Unloaded my equipment back in '90 and haven't been to a hill since. (Quite frankly, my knees didn't like the landing on the front side of a mogul, and I was downloaded like a broken doll.) :(
But I'm starting to think that I've got enough life left in my legs to get out on a frozen lake.

Here's a video snow and water kiters can both appreciate. Cinematography is breathtaking.

Holy Shnarkies Nate! Outstanding contribution to what is turning into a tasty thread.

I couldn't help but think about the potential full frontal collisions of kiters and vertical ice protrusions. I hope for the riders sakes that none of that footage was left on the editing room floor.

Ya - I can't imagine what a muscle cramp would feel like in those conditions. Beautiful Scenery though.
