This year, why not do things a little differently? Here in the US, we have easy access to some of the best snowkiting available on the planet. Why head halfway across the globe, when we have such a great resource right in our own backyard?
The Snowkite Soldier event in Fairfield, Idaho provides access to some of the best snowkiting in North America. Despite having no wind on Friday and Saturday, Spirits where high and the Slider Project L.L.C. setup sliders for everyone to session.
The Camas Valley is a snowkite area close to Fairfield, Idaho, that spreads over several hundred square miles and includes Sun Valley. Riders will find diverse terrain with some launch areas on expansive flats and others nestled into humbling mountain basins.
