Weather at Baikal is very unpredictable and can change any minute to better or worse. The strongest winds are in September. But ocasionally in winter you can get wind powerful enough for snowkiting. Furthermore if your kite is 16 square meters or more in size the wind of 3 meter per second is enough for comfortable kiting. As well as in summer time, the best place for this activity is Posolskiy sor bay which is located 150km away from Baikalsk. There is no services or organization so everything is in your hands. The season starts in January when the lake is finally frozen and ends in May.
