Hi im just wondering,
I'm going to stay at the north shore of Tahoe the day after chistmas and would like to maybe try snow kiting while I am up there. I have a Cabrinha Crossbow 12m and can use a burton custom. I am starting to jump a little and can fairly easily stay upwind.

So I was wondering If there is a specific place you guys could recoment to me to learn at. Or maybe some tips on getting up and running.

I've heard hope valley is supposed to be a good place to learn but where in hope valley should I start from.

I'm a little lost
Any help would be appreciated.

Go the "Snowkiting" discussion section this site and read through last year's posts. There are specific directions to some of the good sites as well as instructions about launches, wind direction, etc.
