Eye On Boise

Lucky Peak lights up for early-morning windsports enthusiasts…

Along with everything else that’s going on in Boise right now – Jaialdi and more – we are in the midst of what looks to be a four-day stretch of near-perfect conditions for early-morning windsports on Lucky Peak Lake. Windsurfers and kitesailers have been loving it for the past two days, and Friday and Saturday look to be just as good if not better; the fun starts at sunrise. The only downside: When the wind’s still blowing, and most of us have to leave to head to work.
