I'm going to check out Fish Camp on Kegonsa to see if there's even a hint of a grippy surface to ride on T and or W this week.

Anyone want to join?

Could be fun to haul tail for some good speed runs until we get another dump of soft snow.

I'm going to check out Kegonsa on Wed if anyone is interested. Looks windy, but probably need sharp skis or a switchblade on a snowboard.

Kegonsa today was awesome. I rigged at Fish camp, but there was a big crack near the launch, so i launched out past the crack. Rode way way downwind though and the snow in the middle was half snow, half ice. Easy to go fast, but could only go about 70% all out. However, closer to shore the snow was 100% coverage, but thin. If you have sharp edges, good skis and able to edge really well, it was awesome.

I would not even bother if you are a snowboarder unless you have a switchblade mounted to your board.

There's a bar/restaurant between Fish Camp and Kegonsa State park that had a few ice boats moored and the snow there was awesome.

There was no-one else at all out on the lake. I was the only moving thing anywhere which was strange. I could tell though the ice boaters have been out as I can see the tracks they leave on the snow/ice.

The snow is not super grippy, but you could hit some good speed where the snow was better. I could probably hold close to 80-90% of an aggressive edge. I only hit 43mph, but looking to get out Friday for sure. Let's ride and bring cameras. I had both my camera and phone (gps - speedometer), but the camera battery is acting strange, so need to get a new battery. Getting some cool vids, but my battery is only lasting about 10 minutes, so hard to get much footage.

Let me know if you are up for Friday.
