Great Ozone movie February 17 2008

Topping the cornice, Summit County Colorado Here is an excellent Ozone Snow Kite Movie about wind mountaineering using traction kites. The movie starts with ski mountaineers  skinning up, much later the Ozone kite team arrive and race to the top in just a matter of minutes. The point isn't that the ascent is faster, it is of course, but it is so much more fun.  Racing uphill using a traction kite is to experience a pure backcountry freedom. Which equipment is better suited for alpine ascent? We like the UpSki for several reasons including it's wind range and ease of use on steep terrain. In the right terrain the kite looks like a blast as well.  However you get back there ....
