Hi All,
Don't blog so hopefully I'm doing this right. I'm heading to SLC on Monday for two weeks and would like to add some kiting to my trip. I plan on taking my 12m (largest kite I have). What are the spots close to SLC that I can check out? What is the best way/sight to keep an eye on the wind conditions? Does ikitesurf have a set up at any of the locations? Any info you can give me would be fantastic!
Thanks!!
MikeWhite

Hi Mike,

I suggest you have a look at the Weather tab above, and check out the "Snowkite Specific Weather" section.
Then, if you're looking for Kiters to join, you might try KWA on facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/6423360 ... 8/?fref=nf
You'll probably get a little more action there than here.

Good luck

-Craig
