Snow Kiting

Text Size  :  1 2 3

Snow kiting is the sublime marriage of snow and power kiting. By using a power kite on skis or snowboards you can glide across snow on frozen lakes, go off piste on "safari", or even be pulled up the sides of mountains.

Because snow kiting is different compared to 4 line kiting and landboarding we have put together a specific short course to ease you into snow kiting and its various safety concepts.

Obviously this kite course is only seasonally available and dependant on location i.e. it will only be in london when there is suitable snow fall. To this end, we occasionally organise specific snow kiting trips abroad.

Snow kiting is definitely the next exciting step for any kite flying snow boarder or intermediate kite flyer who has already attended our kite land boarding, kite buggy or depowerable kite courses.

If you would to see some snow kites in action check out our Poland trip gallery for some photos.
