New to the sport and forum this summer, but looking forward to Snow Kiteboarding.

Is Lake St Clair a good snow spot?
Any other good spots close to Metro Detroit or in MI?
What kite sizes are more freq used in the winter in MI for a 200lb rider?
Do you see anyone out their on Skis rather than a snowboard?

Lots of spots with potential in the metro area. I have spent most snowkiting time on local inland lakes Orchard Lk, Cass Lk, Kent Lk in Kensington MetroPark, Stoney Creek Metro Park, and Walled Lk. Typically it is fairly gusty at these spots but on the snow it is easier to manage the gusts and lulls of inland riding. Timmy B had a great year on the Canadian side in the snowbelt just north of Wallaceberg, not a far drive. The northern lower penisula also offers lots of ridable terrain and lots o' pow pow. The TC crew rides the deep all winter.

Personally I ski more than snowboard on the slopes but have only used the snowboard on the kite. Chris Landis is the only local I know that skis off the kite, ask Lando the next time you see him.

As far as kite size it varys although I think you'll find a 12m inflatable a great kite for the water and snow.
