English (Translate this text in English): Typically 15-20 knots with bluebird days and 20* Fahrenheit with 3 foot snow base Dec-April. Ridges hold more snow with cornices to ride, launch and glide off, gulleys stay shadowed and hold powder days/weeks after storms. West winds are best, but Easterly's work equally well but are rare--and typically 5-7 kn lighter. Kite sizes range from 7m-16.5m depending on the wind speed and temperature due to cold air density making a smaller kite having more power.
