Snowkiting this weekend (1/23-1/24)

Post by benhamner » Sat Jan 23, 2016 10:57 am

I'm considering giving snowkiting a shot today or tomorrow in south Lake Tahoe (Hope Valley, Grass Lake, or Caples Lake).

Anyone else going to be in the area?

Hoping to go out there this weekend to avoid the traffic clusterfuck that the superbowl will produce. The ice thickness pretty good at Caples right now?
Listing gear is bad, and you should feel bad.

Wind forecast looks pretty bad for this week end?

Looks like it might be windier tomorrow. Considering going up from the bay area tomorrow for a half-day at Caples. Anyone done Caples yet this year? Ice thick enough?
