Lake Sacandaga, NY
There's a lot of crazy (aka awesome!) sh_t out there to try and here's one of them. Turns out, every year, Lake Sacandaga freezes over solid enough to walk over. There's also good, constant wind. And a lot of snow. Natually, someone said, Hey, since there's no mountains to go up and down, why don't we strap a sail to our backs and let the wind drag us over the snow! Surfers do it, so why not snowboarders!? So, yeah, that's basically what they did and snowkiting was born. Check out some interesting clips below and sign up to join me for this ridiculous adventure in upstate NY! This trip is rated rated beginner/intermediate.
Note: We're doing a 2-hour, semi-private lesson for $130, after which, you'll be able to attempt it on your own. Send you money via Paypal or Venmo. Also, we're road-tripping approximately 3 hours north, near Albany. Anyone with a car, can you take other snowkiters with you? Finally, you will need a snowboard, boots, and bindings or ski equivalent. Don't have your own gear, you can rent on the way for the day.
