RE: [snowkiteidaho] CJ Strike vs. Cascade
- Jake,CJ Strike for NW winds launch is on South side of Dam. Nicest launch is half way between Black sands Marina and the dam.I've never figured out the winds in Cascade but have been told that it blows all the time except when I show up with kites.Morning winds at Lucky Peak are the only thing going until cold fronts roll through. The water is dropping about 2 ft per day so the beach option at Barclay will be done before weekend. Move up to turner Gulch then hike up to sand bar once water drops about 50 ft. Water is still comfortable in shorty wetsuit. I'll head out again tomorrow unless the smoke is worse than it was this morning only got 45 mins inEddy

I just drove up to strike to scope it out. Where do you launch from
exactly? Just to the left of the Dam and right of the grassy park
with the trees? Also, where do you take our normally?
If you do a downwinder, where do you take out? It looked like it
might be on the clear upward sloping embankment just before the cove
camping area. Is this right? Do you need booties?
How is cascade for kiting anyway? I haven't been there for a while,
but it seems like it would be a little more forgiving launching on the
beachy cascade side of the lake vs. the Tamarack side. I seem to
remember decent winds up
