Jackson, Wyoming is my home base and has some of the best winter conditions in the country. The terrain is vast and mountains are steep. We get conditions of all sorts, blizzard, whiteout, crust, icy, rocky, trees... but we also find conditions so good you wouldn't believe it. We watch the weather religiously. For the epic day, we search for perfect wind speed blowing over fresh snow without wind damage or warming. We listen to the avalanche reports and carry beacons and shovels whenever we’re off the beaten path. We are very careful with inspecting our kites, and when we go big you can be assured that it is very calculated. The gliding aspect of the sport has really drawn us to a variety of terrains high into the mountains. Once deep in the mountains, we’re finding ways to mesh big mountain riding, wakestyle and freestyle into our terrain.
