Kite Skiing

Whitehorse, Yukon - Feb. 10, 2008

While in Whitehorse, I had the opportunity to hook up with the folks from KiteYukon.com to try my hand at kite skiing. The basic idea is to let the wind in the canopy carry you along as you direct yourself with the skiis. It is a lot tougher than it sounds and Jim (shown) made it look easy. I did alright but spent a lot of my time fighting with the kite and trying not to break an arm.

Seriously, it was a lot of fun, even though the temperature outside was around -25C.
