Keswick Snowkiting Report
Keswick looks like a good spot for snow kiting at this time of the year, since the Cooks Bay area is one of the first to freeze during the winter in southern Ontario. Above is the latest photo to report on today’s conditions (January 11, 2012).
The conditions for ski-kiting over ice are good right now, as it is very thick. As determined by the measurement of an ice screw, it is 30cm deep. The ice screw is a very useful tool in winter kiting, as it may be used as an anchor for self-launching your kite, as well as in emergency landings.
On some of the pictures you may even see signs of tire tracks and fishing huts that were set up on the ice. The only down side at this time, is that there is no snow yet, but hopefully it will be here very soon. In the meantime, let grab our skis and enjoy snowkiting together with IKite Canada!
