I am living in a rental now just up 4 mile in Glenwood. Due to some health issues, I didnt get out much this winter. Just moved here around Christmas. I think in heavy snow years, there is probably so good stuff just outside of glenwood, think it private, but ranchers are probably not around then
)) I did get out the Ruedi for one pretty good day. I think that place has good potential on just the right wind day. However, it is Colorado. No wind to gale in the same hour.
I did go the mesa quite a few times, only to be skunked most of the time. The wind is just so unpredicatble up there, at least right off the road. The better goods are just off the edge around lands end. However its about 15 miles in on a Snowmobile, which I used for the few times I went out there. I would have gone more often, but I would not go by myself on a snowmobile (just a standard safety rule) and I had a hard time finding kiting partners.
The best place I ended up going was Red Mt. pass. I have had a few really good days down there. However I am not really the person to ask though. I have not really got after it that much, as the lack of wind after I packed and drove for 2-4 hours was extremely frustrating. Dave Grossman is the guy to talk to in GJ.
