RE: [snowkiteidaho] Re: Heading up today
- well the difference between nad83 and nad27 is about 300 ft. so the coord's get you close enough. look for a long ridge line south and west of Grasmere 10 miles.

Subject: RE: [snowkiteidaho] Re: Heading up todayGreat, but where is it?
Hey eddy yesterday was only good from about 1:30- 3:30. During that time is was rippin WNW 20-24 mph, then it tapered off about 5:30 pm. However what a weird weather pattern. Calm in boise, and mtn home but rippin cross most of the state above 5000 ft.
BTW- Chris and I have Discovered a whole new kite area that kicks ass for all wind directions and will be our saving grace when the forecast turns SE, SSE, S, SSW. It's above 5600 ft, has a 5 mile long ridge, tons of relief, and incompasses somewhere around 50,000 acres. It is about 12'' of snow behind the camas, but with a few more storms it will be good to go.
lets hope for a big weekend! i want to see everybody out there!
just as a heads up, the Snowpark looks pretty good, but most of the rocky areas are still really shallow and hard to see!!!! excercise extreme caution when riding.
