How long are you going to be out there? I might try to make it out this weekend for a day if you are going to be around and the weather looks ridable. I will give you shout. -Aaron

dont forget to remind people it costs $11 for a day ticket and $33 for a season ticket to do anything "recreational" on the dunes like kiteboarding or hang-gliding (sledding and snowboarding you don't need a ticket for).

The parking lot looks pretty dry, I think there might be some snow on the west side of the dunes but there was no wind today.

Looks like forecast is for up to a foot around Warren Dunes... Thinking about Saturday or Sunday to Snowkite.... Any thoughts? Anybody else thinking the same?

Tug Hill event not enough snow or wind this weekend... Need my fix. Sean
