Back from several weeks in Maui, it feels good to ride some snow. Luckily I flew back home during the best snowkite week of the whole winter.
I tried to get this shot last year several times, although there was never enough snow, the landing of this jump is directly on the frozen lake, which often is pure ice. For several days in a row, there was a good 10 inches of snow on the landing.
Recently I’ve been riding the Slingshot Raptor, what an amazing 5 struts kite. Very stable, intuitive with great boost. Click Here to learn more about the Raptor.
Last season I mostly snowkited with skis, there was a major lack of snow in Montreal, on hardpack skis ends up being the wisest pick.
