Snowkiting is one of the fastest growing extreme snowsports in the world, it combines the alpine sports of skiing and snowboarding with the techniques and kites used in kiteboarding. It differs from other alpine sports, in that it is possible for the snowkiter to travel uphill when the wind is blowing in the right direction.
When snowkiting the kite is tethered to the rider via a waist harness and controlled or steered using a control bar in the hands of the rider. The kite can be flown in specific patterns to generate greater power or can be used to allow the harnessed rider to jump or fly through the air. Snowkiting can be dangerous so taking lessons with a certified instructor and learning the proper safety techniques is a must in this sport.
We have a private lesson that is perfect for you. Lessons are offered for individuals ages 8-80. We have a variety of lessons ranging from first time kiter to experienced snowkiters looking to advance their skills.
For kite boarders wanting to transition to snow we also have a lesson for you.
