Last week, Friday, was Park-n-Ride Payday in the Big Horns!
Smooth wind, two feet of powder, good friends, and the spectacular beauty of Bald Mountain were the rewards. I flew the 15m Ozone Chrono v3 Ultralight and enjoyed the deeply satisfying feeling flying across miles of untracked snow, wind power at my fingertips.

Laying first tracks on Bald Mtn, boosting here and there, and everyone of us Montana kiters having the most fun possible in the soft snow, made my first session of the winter, well, perfect!

See ya out there,
Noah

Looks nice but I don't think we will see you out there when it is a 8+ hour drive. I came out last year for the rodeo and the conditions were horrible, ended up driving 2200 miles all around chasing wind and crummy snow. You got the mtns and we got the gorge, tough trade off. Awesome pics, miss those days back in CO. Keep em coming.

snow kiting is a adventure........

If the wind and snow were easy to put together with a busy schedule normally responsible people may snow kite more.

Thankfully thats not the case ,
otherwise launches may look like the gorge cluster @#$ks of summer.

Twisted Evil

Noah keep the dream alive..... we will keep wishing in Oregon .

Yup! Only place I am happy to see lots of new water kiters show up is in the Midwest.

But everywhere I snowkite, even the popular locations, it is good to see new kiters too.

Thanks for posting Noah and keeping the stoke alive!

One of my favorite snowkiting videos from the Jackson Hole Crew: Flyoming.

It seems like there might be Bald Mountain in the Flyoming snowkiting vid in it also? Yeah or nay, Noah?

You bet! Bald Mtn in the Big Horns is featured multiple times. Will Taggart does a great job with his edits.

SNOW Kiting!!!

Noah - your post has literally been the only thing to burst me out of my growing depression having to watch the nukin' wind RIP thru ROOSTER - way too windy and now admittedly getting a bit too COLD for normal humans...that and reading all the crazy posts on NW Kite about Gman, PDX Monkey Boy, Henry, Stringy & Joe and the rest of the gang. They all seem to have done nearly everything kite powered, including night winch jumps and it seems there was even a NWK Party in 2009?

Combining POWder riding and kiting is almost too much awesomeness to think about - I need to have a drink to bring the STOKE LEVEL back within a safe range under 10,000.

Now looking even MORE forward to the coming snow szn. THANKS FOR THE POST!!!

Mc
