    How about ice kite boarding as a concept?

    If you are on an 11 mile long lake that is frozen and has 2 feet of snow on it - no.

    For excitement you could put ski jumps on the ice just like in waterskiing. Only problem is there is no wake to jump.

    Depends on how choppy it is when the lake freezes over.

    I kinda like it, the original context was starting to get boring.

    Think of how cold it would have to get for that to happen!

    many years the lake freezes - then the water level goes down further. The ice cracks, shifts, and a huge ridge picks up. If you were to hit it from one side on a snowmobile you would get launched. Come at it from the other side and it would really hurt. What is amazing is to see river freeze.
