If you've thought you might like to get into snowkiting but were at a loss for where/how to begin it sounds like this place will be a good starting point for folks in the Sierras. I'm not sure what Jacob Buzianis' involvement is but he's a hell of a nice guy & a pretty exceptional snowkiter. I don't know anything else about the terrain or folks involved but just thought I'd pass it along. Copy & pasted from another kiters forum.

Press Release

Winter 2012

Snowkiting Comes To California

With the fall leaves changing color and snow beginning to crest the mountaintops, the 2012-13
winter brings with it Tahoe’s newest winter experience, snowkiting. Snowkiting is a sport where
skiers and snowboarders use windpower to go uphill, across meadows, jump, and get endless
powder turns. For the past ten years, snowkiting has been gaining popularity throughout the US.
Snowkiting’s water counterpart, kiteboarding, will be making its olympic debut in 2018 . “The
presence of snowkiting in the Tahoe area has long been awaited. “With the new Sierra Snowkite
Center, everyone will have the opportunity to take part in this great sport,” says Jacob Buzianis,
snowkiting legend and owner of Utah Snowkite Center.
Sugar Bowl sales and marketing director, John Monson, and North American Snowkite Tour
Champion/ owner of Sierra Snowkite, Tyler Brown, have been looking forward to bringing
snowkiting to Donner Summit for several years. “People can now enjoy a day of skiing only to
retire to an afternoon of snowkiting,” explains Tyler, “With Sugar Bowl operating Royal Gorge and
now the addition of the Sierra Snowkite Center, one can partake in a trifecta of winter sports all
in one day. It’s truly a unique experience that is only offered here on Donner Summit.” Sierra
Snowkite will offer a variety lesson packages, gear demos, and an amazing 250 acre riding area.
