Anyone doing it? I am returning the Homeland for a couple of weeks and I’m bringing kites along. Last winter I checked out McCullough and it appeared to be ideal.

I’d like to know as well. I’ll be there over xmas. I was only going to take my snowboard but if there are some good spots I’m sure I could fit in a kite or two.

McCullough Resevoir works well you just have to watch for snowmobilers.  Since our recent cold and snow I would suggest Duck Lake, out by the airport.  It gets reliable south and north winds and is close to town so you don’t have to drive all the way up to McCollough.  Another possibility would be Hathume Lake up on the Connector.  Big lake on a flat plateau that is usually always windy.  The only issue is the logging trucks on the road into the lake.

how about at Bigwhite? Does anyone know of any kiting up near the resort - ie guided tours to nearby slopes or plateaus?

McCullogh is near big white, nothing at big white.
k2 is right, duck lake is easiest and actually perfect right now…
but a thaw is coming this week,
