Real time wind and forecasts for Tahoe snowkiting

Post by benhamner » Mon Feb 01, 2016 11:16 pm

Has anyone found a way to get reliable real-time wind measurements and/or forecasts for any of the Tahoe snowkiting locations? kgbswag.com/snowkiting-locations/

The data through iKitesurf doesn't seem to be granular enough to be very helpful.

I found this link for the Tahoe Meadows wind conditions. It's not real-time, but it's close. The history records at 10 minute intervals, but it doesn't update every 10 minutes...

This sensor is at the "road summit" which may be more precise since it's closer to the meadow and it's elevation. Unfortunately it updates more erratically...
