Can one kite near mammoth in July?

Postby behindThePeak » Tue Jul 22, 2014 9:27 pm

I'm planning a trip to mammoth and wondering if it's worth packing a kite. Anyone know if the lakes around mammoth mountain are kite-able this time of year?

I kited on June Lake a couple years ago. There was a regular crew of 3 guys :) As with any mountain lake kiting be prepared to swim

Don't know about the kiting, but I have done a ton of sailing on Huntington Lake. In the sailing community it is regarded as the most consistent wind in the Sierra's.

Can anyone add personal experience?
