d soldier snow kite event 1It has been over 10 years or more since I had touched my race skies or even been on snow!  I ventured this year out with my brother to Idaho to get a taste of my previous life as a ski racer!!  It was like being a little kid. Epic snow conditions beautiful days. Everyone had a nice laugh at our old skies and boots, but when it came down to racing well it was all cleared up as my old stuff still worked and I managed to take the win in my first snowkite event! Ken Lucus and I managed to take first and third in the Snowkite Soldier event for Cabrinha. A big thanks goes out to Trisha and Monty for all your efforts for a great event!  Also to Dave Grossman with Drift snowkite Magazine and all the volunteers and helpers that put the effort to make this such a special time for us flying up from Florida!
