      I heard from a friend there were people riding in Sun Valley at the Warm Spring Lodge last weekend. That's a good sign, but a tad far. If anyone feels like chasing a fix this weekend, let me know. I have never gone this long without kiting when I'm not injured.

        Will,

        I was out there on saturday just to check out the conditions. Featherville Flats is deep enough if you keep an eye out for the random rock. The snow is probably 10" deep and there was a soft crust on top. If you drive straight into the Malcolmsen snow park off the highway and continue straight you can drive out to the flats via the access road if you have 4wd. You should also be able to access the flats from the Pine turnoff. The rest of the terrain is still barren of snow.

          Saturday looks like it s supposed to be sunny with a West breeze. Is this the right condition for a good afternoon thermal? Thanks, Josh

                To bad you guys couldn't of got away on the 27 th 52 and windy at CJ/river and yesterday was 5/7 meter weather  33G44 at CJ/river but only 45 degrees that is a wind chill of about 27 . But no wind in the forecast For the water or the snow Saturday or Sunday . Even LP looks bad if you could stand the cold , I have seen some big numbers on the LP raws lately, up to 25 one morning .
