Conditions in Westport...


...are Perfect. Looks like we have a breezy week ahead too. Best place to launch in S or SW is the Westport Harbour. From there you can go back and forth all the way to Forresters Landing. Just beware of a wicked wind shadow as you approach the shoreline near Forresters. Hope to see some folks up here soon! Ira Trevor and I made a day out of it in near white out conditions and volatile winds... still sore from it...lol

Re: Conditions in Westport...


Just came off the lake... knee to hip deep powder! I haven't been in snow like that since I was a kid on a ski trip to the mountains! The session however was brutal and exhausting - the kite just wanted to tear me in half whenever I hit some really deep snow. I was way under powered I suspect, the kite was straining to pull me through it. If anyone is heading out to play in this deep stuff, use a bigger kite than you normally would... I was really surprised how much drag there was. But if you want the best snow east of the Rockies, get up here, it is absolutely unbelievable conditions!

Re: Conditions in Westport...


What is the snow coverage like in Westport now? Any chance there is a session in the works on Sunday with a north breeze?
