First session of the 2021/22 winter season here in Northern New England.


Got the goods on 9" of pow last week in Vt/NH.

It's not full-on but it's a start!

The 2 pics on right look like Peak 4 (not sure on size since 5, 6 & 8 are same color). Had a 4m and 8m and were awesome kites.

Heard that a Peak 5 is coming out soon.

Always amazing to me that you've got frozen lakes, and I'm still wearing a short john wetsuit :D

And you're about as far north as my hometown is south...



Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

Good to see someone getting some early kiting in. Once the lakes freeze I'll be on Sunapee and Massabesic with the new ice buggy. Maybe I can schedule some time to visit you at Winny!:wee:

The Peak shown here is a Peak 4 6m in custom color.

Peak 5 is in the pipeline. But availability is tight. Our school kites are going to be the first order of Peak 5s in the states I'm told. :-) Looking forward to testing them side by side with the Peak 4. There have been minor changes and I'm curious to see how they feel.

Saturday afternoon. Mount Washington is in the background.

7" of ice. Had to hike a few miles for it but happy to do it.
