Conditions in MT are totally sketch & widespread with spatial variability as unpredictable as I've ever seen. Sure - safe terrain can be had - but sometimes its just funner to turn 2' of pure facets into your friend instead of worrying all the way to the top & riding tentative lines. Snowkiting huge meadows & hills in those same facets is as much fun as a 40% chute in perfect powder.

Big fields of perfect facets

Sometimes the wind dies a long ways from the start point but a Monkified split saves a long miserable posthole session back to the bile

Nice alpenglow sunset to finish off a great day

sorry no pics of actual kiting but hard to do solo

These aren't my pics or me in any of them. These guys are REAL kiters killing it in J-Hole country.....Sublet Peak to be more exact
