    Kite boarding: Anyone?

    While the last thing I need is another expensive hobby, a guy I know that runs a shop in durango has gotten really into kite boarding and was peaking my interest. The nice thing is that you can get kites that work for both winter snowboarding and summer wakeboarding. Anyone ever done it? If...

    Wolf Creek 12/4/05

    :shock: OMG, I'm beat. I think I rode the deepest powder I've ridden in 5 years.

As Sharon said in...
