Snowkite, as well as kite surf, is a safe sport and can be practised “almost every day”.

Busy and long queues at the ski lifts? It’s not a problem. With snowkite you are just yourself, your kite and great snow spots waiting to be crossed.

  • STEP 1
    THEORY

    In the first part of the course you will learn the basics of snowkite. The terms and their meaning will be explained. What is a Wind Window? How to fly the kite and how can I control it? A bit of physics and security. How does kite behave in different areas of the window? What are the dimensions of the sail to be used in relation to the wind? What are the ideal areas for practicing this sport? Come and discover all that and much more.

    PRACTICE IN THE SNOW KITE AREA

    In the second part of the course we will practice using the material. This means that there will be a lot of flying practice in the Snowkite area. We will make you feel comfortable with the control of sailing, take-off and landing. We thought of an entire training program to make you pilot safely and easily for a guaranteed fun.

STEP 3
TECHNIQUES

The second day is the third stage of skiing or snowboarding. Everything about flying safety is discussed, safe and independent piloting, rights of way, turning, etc.

An important point is the driving safety. By using radio helmets, the instructor will give you instructions and suggestions on how to correct yourself, guide and help you to learn without putting you under pressure. You will learn to land the kite independently and in a controlled manner.

For those who have experience Kitesurfing before: On ice and snow it will be a whole new and different experience not tob e compared to the practice in the water!

The second day consists of an entire training program so that you can get quick results in peace and ease.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE IN A GROUP?

Each group consists of up to 4 students per teacher.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU JOIN?

There is no need for special knowledge for the kite snow test.

Of course, if you want to practice snowkite in a more intensive way, you need to know how to ski or snowboard. As the climate is naturally different from summer, at low temperatures it will be harder to find ways to warm up in the wind and snow.

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU?

Carry with you – depending on the temperature – warm clothing – Ski clothes, sunglasses with UV protection, sunscreen, warm shoes with heavy soles for the piloting lessons, a helmet, and your ski set or snowboard. If you do not have skiing or snowboarding equipment, you can rent any missing piece in any shop on the slopes.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

The price includes the use of harness and kite. During the week, prices are slightly lower than on weekends.

WHERE DOES THE COURSE TAKE PLACE?

All Snowkite courses are held at both Resia and the Alpe di Siusi in Resia. Detailed instructions can be found here.

WHEN IS THE COURSE AVAILABLE?

Courses take place from December to March, depending on weather and snow conditions. Dates will be confirmed based on bookings.
