Winter snowkiting topics and locations.
I'm new to the bay area this year, and am keen to met some local snow kiters who head up to Tahoe on a regular basis.
I want to get an idea of how many locals regularly kite up there (or anywhere accessible out of SF really) and organize a social drink during the week to say hi and see if there's a few people to head out with on the weekends.
I was thinking Wednesday December 1st somewhere in the city, who would be interested?
You and me both mate. Long time snowboarder and kiter - it just seems like a logical step now that I'm in the area.
If you're in the city, I'm free most weeknights and this weekend if we want to set up a time. We can just then see if anyone shows up? A post on kiteforum.com might also help.
Want to PM me with some suggestions of place/time?
Logical - yes. In the bay area - not so much.
The closest snow area is Tahoe, and its not that great for snow kiting. Unless you live there and can get out in half an hour notice, then IMO its not worth the drive from San Francisco/Peninsula.
You see many kiters in the bay area fly to Utah, when Tahoe is three hours drive. Ever asked yourself why ?
I guess I answered my own question:

Anybody interested in planning a trip there sometimes next year? Flights seem to be around $260 now for next Feb.
Anyone interested in a 2011 snow kite meetup/social?
I'll be in south lake Tahoe weekends this winter with hopes to get kiting as much as the wind allows.
