Alston 22/02/2010


panoramic_2048.jpg

A few of us headed up to the Alston area only to be evicted by the gamekeeper who wasn't happy about a load of kites that look like a large raptor to the grouse that were slowly returning to the moorland after spending most of the winter in the low lying areas due to the severe frost. Good spot though but we'd need permission to ride there again unfortunately....

France/Switerland/Italy - 22/03/2009


IMG_5429_1024.jpg

Martin, Ade and I had a 5 day trip to the French Alps. We stayed in Tignes, France, but visited a couple of other areas on the trip. We spotted an area whilst landing in Geneva to snowkite - Mont Salève so we got off the plane and drove straight there. Little bit of a hike in and we were rewarded with a huge open area with reasonable wind. Great start. We checked out La Rosiere and La Thuile and did a little kiting at the Petit St Bernard pass. We had the pièce de résistance on the final day at Tignes where we snowkited on the Grande Motte glacier on untouched powder.

Copy of backloop.jpg

Location: Raise Mountain - Helvelyn Massif
Conditions - Alpine - Powder Snow - Wind SW - 10 increasing 25 mph.

What a day. Looked like the weather was going to turn bad but it never did. Sunshine almost all day. Good wind, snow perfect. Ride down at the end of the day from Raise Summit was epic.

For sure one of the best days of the year.

Alston - 07/02/2009


IMG_5151_1024.jpg

Ade, JK and I headed up to Alston for a snowkiting session. We hooked up with the Haverigg lads Patty and Tys. Pete, Paul and Andy turned up after having done a bit of a cross country marathon to get to where we were. Decent day although the flat light was a nightmare and vis in the snow storms.

Raise - 24/01/2009


IMG_4969_1024.jpg

Andy, Clive, Pete, Paul, JK and I headed up to Raise to do a bit of snowkiting. Conditions were good. Wind probably 20-30 mph snow coverage ok, bit thin and icey in places due to the wind but softened up as the day went on and there was some powder stashes to be found in sheltered areas. Epic trip just ripping up and down the plateau at the top.

Clough Head - 24/3/2008


IMG_2791_1024.jpg

Fraser, John and I have hike up to Clough Head. The photographs say it all. Gotta be one of the best days ever. Sweet wind, nice snow. Awesome. We spotted some other locations too from the top. Next time we'll kite from there to raise and back, and use the kites to get up the mountain instead of treking. Class. Nice one lads! Oh aye and snow kiting in powder 2 days in a row at Easter in the UK - superb.
