Weed Lake

Weed Lake is a very shallow (~1-2′) lake located just N of Langdon Alberta that offers very good wind exposure for all directions (except on the S end of the lake in a SW wind) for snowkiting and kiteboarding. Weed Lake has become very popular with Calgary kiters as it is very close to Calgary and accumulates good snow levels and also offers open water for kiteboarding very early in the Spring and warms quickly due to its very shallow water level. After the Spring season, Weed Lake becomes more like a slough and is not for the squeamish. As the water level at Weed Lake is very shallow the water surface remains very flat even in high winds and riding off shore wind is not an issue here due to the shallowness. See map below for more launch location details.
