If I'm not teaching lessons

If I'm not teaching lessons ill be there Sunday ( Jan 20 ).
I have one booked, but it might cancel.

So that said ill bring a big wind sock! From an airport.

Also, it is good riding but def. ice riding,

Not enough snow for carving with out scraping into the black ice.
Jumping is ok, but very limited as the ice can pop our edge out.

If your looking for simple cruising.... This def. a good spot!

Hope to see you all there

Trying to get out Sat and my smallest kite is a 9m so Melvin may not work for me. But I may be up there Monday with the lighter wind. Sunday is no good.

Hi JOE... i should be there

Hi JOE...
i should be there pretty early, around 730-830 maybe 9 at the latest, so long as the winds are stronger, and I dont have lessons, it will be last minute.

But if I am there, your sure to know

Theres plenty of parking on a, sort of, back road.

if you gps "Lake Rd Melvin Village, NH" that's the exact spot to park.

Jan 20 2013 Melvin village

Ice.
Melting very fast, almost 1-2 inches melted today.

Most snow that was supporting good edge-ability is now in a cloud swiftly on the way to England.

If your on a board... It's kinda crappy

If your in race skis, or ice skates,... It's ok,

wish

Wish I could have joined you guys today but I decided to stay local. Ice is melting here too but we had enough to ride throughout the morning until the winds overpowered us on 9's and 7's. The soft powder found yesterday turned mushy and some to slush but all it did was slow us down a bit. Tons of fun regardless.

Incoming snow looks

Incoming snow looks great!

I'm sick of ice.

My only fear is they with the super cold temps, the snow in powder form may just blow off, albeit some will get packed down!

Lets hope for the best
