Snow kiting location map for Australia

The good chaps (Marty) over at the facebook kosi kiters group have knocked up this wicked map for snow kiting locations in the Snowy Mountains!

Whilst this map may fill you with excitement for getting out there please remember the following! Snow Kiting is f-ing dangerous! The top of a mountain can/will kill you if you are not prepared! it’s cold, the weather / visibility can change in the blink of an eye, winds are GUSTY, they are usually either light or stupendously windy, you can travel a LONG way without realising so you need to be prepared to walk (with skins on skis or snow shoes) if the wind dies or you pop a kite. The rule here is never kite further than you are prepared to walk! Remember, if you hurt yourself and can’t get down someone else has to, it either screws up everyone elses day or costs a shit load in chopper fees, oh and mobiles don’t work so well up there!

That said, it’s awesome fun and we’ll be up there as much as possible! If you are going up, let someone know when you should be down and where you were intending to be. :)
