tahoe snowkiting locations

Postby adamrod » Wed Jan 10, 2007 3:08 am

Please correct me if this information is posted somewhere, but I can't seem to find much about the different snowkiting launches in tahoe. Is it possible someone could do a short writeup (much like they have for 3rd ave, waddell, alameda etc on the kitesurfing launch page) for each snowkite location?

As far as I can tell, there seem to be 3 places most people snow kite?

Martis Meadows
Hope Valley
Mt. Rose

could someone give a short description of each place as well as directions on how to get there? If someone could help me out, I'd be really thankful, as I'm itching to go snowkite soon. If this information is compiled somewhere, it'd be much appreciated if you point me in that direction!

cheers!

I'm pretty sure it's all in the snowkiting forum, although the specific relevant posts have never gotten moved to the "locations" section of the site.

The most important one you don't have listed is Red Lakes Ridge, which is really the reliable in terms of wind and snow. It's just down the road from Hope Valley, but it involves a 1/2 hike to get to it.

well, I did a quick search and couldn't really find anything specific . . .Red Lakes Ridge does sound like the call (if you have snowshoes). but, where is it? (and, where are the other places?)
