We’re talking about kites. Not the Charlie Brown kind of kite, but the colorful kind you see around Alaska that makes people zoom over water and snow. Host Charles Wohlforth and guests will talk more about the sport — how it came to Alaska and what athletes are doing with it now. Not only is kiting a summer sport for water enthusiasts zipping around Turnagain Arm, it’s also a backcountry snow sport.
