The 2009 Lake Tahoe Snowkite Series will have its final round of lessons, gear demos, sick freeride sessions, and all around snowkiting fun the weekend of March 14-15. We will likely be headed to Grass Lake or Hope Valley on the 14th and then try for a more advanced spot on Sunday. We will be sending out an email on March 12th with the location specifics. We will be offerring free group lessons, private lessons for $75/hr, or the chance to demo all the latest Ozone kites and Slingshot RPM. We will be having a big raffle with lots of prizes for everybody who shows up.To register and get on the email list, go here: http://www.tahoemountainsports.com/store/snowkite-series-signup-form.php

We are going to hold this final event on Saturday, March 14th at Prosser Resevoir.
Directions to Prosser Resevoir: Take Interstate 80 to Truckee. Take the Highway 267 exit and go north (left if you are coming from the west and right if you are coming from the east). Go straight through the double lane roundabout and take your next right onto Prosser Dam Rd. Follow Prosser Dam Rd. until the end and park respectfully on the side of the road and do not block the snowmobile loading/unloading zone. Look for the Ozone flags, we will be stationed there.
Weather Forecast: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 49. Breezy, with a west wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Here is the link so you can follow it yourself: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=39.37995654807611&lon=-120.15884399414062&site=rev&smap=1&marine=0&unit=0&lg=en
We still have open spaces, so if you have friends or others who want to
come, feel free to invite them. Dress appropriately, bring all your own ski/snowboard gear, HELMET, water, food, etc. and be prepared to be outside all day in the cold, windy, weather. Bring you own kites and harness as well if you have them.
I will try to be there around 11am, so if you are on the fence about showing up and want
an onsight weather report, you can call my cell at 530-913-5163.
Like all wind sports, wind is the only thing not guaranteed!
If you have a snowmobile, you can bring it. And if you know anybody who has a snowmobile and wants to help out, send them my way as well. We will pay for gas!
Finally, the after party will take place at the Blue Coyote Restaurant and Bar in Truckee. They will have a big table reserved under the name Tahoe Mountain Sports starting at 6pm.
