Here is Joes final instalment of his trilogy of Montana kitning, enjoy.
This weekend Frances and I traveled just 2 hours down Interstate 90 to the GTO. Cole Russell put on a wonderful event with course racing, speed and distance trials and a freestyle competition.
There are experiences or events that I experience where the sum is truly greater than the parts and this weekend was one of those happy and great take aways. On Saturday morning I got out of bed and started organizing for the weekend at 5:00 AM. I was hoping that Frances and I could have a 6:30 departure for Georgetown Lake and the Georgetown Open, affectingly called the GTO. This was the final snowkite event for this season, put together by Cole Russell. Cole has worked hard to put this event on for the past six years as he has diligently built his snowkite business, Underground Kitesports, in Phillipsburg, Montana.
Here is episode 2 of Joe’s 2012 triology. Thanks Joe for another great video! As some of you may have noticed Joe is a semi-regular contributor to this blog and he has given permision to display his work on these blog posts.
Joe just sent me this link of the first in a video trilogy he is putting together of the 2012 kite season. Joe has featured some of the Montana Snowkite Crew having a great time in our corner of the world. Joe does an amazing job of editing, and self filming; see if you can spot the clips he filmed of himself or others remotely. Thanks Joe for your contribution!
Here is a great video that Jason Frounfelker put together of some of the Montana crew kiting a few of the spots around “Man-tana”. Thanks Jason for letting me post this and putting together such a great short film.
“Just another weekend of wind and little snow. Thanks for all the good vibes and I hope to follow up with many more vids.” -Frouny
Pascal put together this beautiful video of his kite adventures this past weekend. I always love checking out what Pascal, Wayne and the other Jackson Hole Kiters are up to they put a capital “A’ on adventure. Thank you Pascal for giving me permission to post this!
This video was posted today on the Southwest Montana Avalanche Report. It is an amazing story that has transpired over the past 6 days. Worth the view for sure, it tells the story of an amazing dog.
Here is a great video from kitesites featuring many of the cool and wonderful snowkiters at the Snowkite Masters last season. Billy gives some excellent advice.
A little something to get us all excited for the winter.
