SNOWKITE Czech the powder gallery

Two reports from Zdenek P. (Switch)  on snowkiting giant mountains within the Czech Repulbic!

No.1:

After last year´s failure in Martinské Hole mounatins we didn’t want to risk no snow on New Year´s eve. So we bet on a sure. Luční bouda is on 100 % paradise for snowkiting and New Year´s eve is always SNK dream week with everything what we need. This year was the same and there was fresh powder and deluxe weather with super steady wind.

The midmorning journeys changed afternoon traversing which was usually until the evening. When there was tha dark in Luční bouda we decided to go on the west hang of the mountain with Rado and enjoyed the monstrous sunset in the clouds. The Luční bouda dominates and after all problems it is the best place for snowkiting in the Czech republic. Let´s see the photo gallery from harmonious freeride and look forward to next Powder galery“ in next days.

No.2:

Next session on Luční bouda was in big massive style with shoots of powder. After the extreme freezes was the snow airy and feathery how fresh tilt coke. Start, fluffiness, next hold breath and exit from the white rubble we can´t tire of it. We enjoyed the traversing until the luxury sunset. A few boomers finished when the sky was black, because the conditions were great and comprehensible. We will see, how the winter will shape up, but one thing is sure. We are going to visit The Luční bouda one more time. Good Wind!!
