Every year we host an annual snow kite summit up here in the Bighorn Mountains. The event has become so popular that we now have plans to add 2 additional snow kite events in March 2017. Our region features a trifecta of perfect kiting conditions, the first and foremost being the snow. The Wyoming High Country Lodge is located at 9,000 feet above sea level, and we receive over 200 inches of snow annually! The snow arrives here early and sticks around very late into the season. November through April typically has great kiting conditions. Our terrain is loaded with endless rolling hills, basins, and bowls which allow for especially long and smooth gliding. It is a perfect set up for beginner through advanced kiters. As a result of the landscape, stronger winds are able to set up without being blocked, creating less turbulent patterns and allowing for greater kite control.
If you don't have transportation while on the mountain, don't worry, we've got you covered! Book with 6 or more kiters, and we will set up your own mini Snow Kite Summit with free transportation up to Bald Mountain on our snowcats (plus a 6x10 trailer to haul your gear!). We are happy to drop the gear trailer at your kiting spot, and leave it there for the day so that you not only have a place for all your kit, but you can also get out of the elements for a break. When you are finished kiting, we will come back to pick you and your pals up in our snow cat. Back at the lodge, enjoy a hot, homemade meal and take a dip in the hot tub!
If your group has less than 6 kiters, we are still able to provide transportation for a small fee to cover fuel and upkeep. If you want more freedom to explore and switch spots during the day, we can arrange snowmobile rentals depending on the number of days/sleds you need.
