We are happy to announce the second annual Big Horn Snowkite Summit. Once again the snowkite tribe will gather early in the winter at the Wyoming High Country Lodge, right next to the legendary Mt. Baldy in northern Wyoming.
This years event will take place Monday, December 1st through Sunday December 7th.
This years “event” is really more of a gathering of like minded individuals. While I am sure there will be discussions in the evening at the Wyoming High Country Lodge, nothing is structured or programmed. After last year’s successful event, (in spite of the consecutive days of 30 below zero) we wanted to focus on snowkiting and having as much fun as we possibly can. Ideas involving the progression of the sport should be hatched over a beverage of choice after a long day of kiting.
Much like last year, we need to stress that you will have to be responsible for your own safety and transportation over snow! Snowmobiles are ideal, but there will be access to snowcoaches to transport kiters to the event site.
When and Where: This years Bighorn Snowkite Summit will be based out of the Wyoming High Country Lodge, December 1st through December 7th.
Lodging on site requires snowmobile or snow coach access and it first come first served.
The lodge will sellout! Our gracious hosts, Howard and Cheryl Jones have made extra efforts to accommodate everyone who wants to stay on site by installing a yurt! There is an all inclusive, per day amount of $75.00 that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Anyone who attended last years event will attest to the fact that the food was incredible and no one went hungry! Just mention you are there for the event. If you are interested, make your reservations now by calling Cheryl and Howard at 307-529-0914!
Additionally, breakfast, lunch & dinner at the Lodge will be available to off-site attendees. An RSVP is required if you are staying off-site & would like to take advantage of meals.
