Merry Christmas to all from Ann and Myself!!

 

Hopefullyt 2011 is a better year. Lots of snow and good conditions for downhill snow boarding and snow kiting, right now. I have had four decent sessions so far this year with more to come.

We are also going to make a very strong effort to get over and sail Blue Lagoon with you this upcoming spring.
