ADVANCED SNOWKITING COURSE
Have you tried kiting before but can’t remember everything and want help moving forward? Maybe you have experience in the water and want help getting started on the snow? Are you already pretty good but want to take a step further for jumps, tricks, and riding in the terrain? Or are you ready for a real challenge and want tips and training on how to prepare for a multi-day kite expedition?
Our instructors have many years of kiting experience. Some have participated in international competitions, kiting over the Hardangervidda with sleds and tents, and flown from the peaks around Haukelifjell. They can help you take the next step in your kite career.
In this course, we adapt to your level and show you what YOU want to learn.
Please note: To run this course, we require at least two participants.
We also require that you have previously attended a beginners course on snow or on water.
- Special considerations for snowkiting
- Techniques for jumping
- Kiting in the terrain
- Self-rescue/kite rescue
- Snowkiting on your own — safety
- Kiting on top tours
- Choosing a kite spot in the mountains — what to look for, what considerations to take
- Wind understanding and turbulence

- Techniques for kiting with pulk
The course will be held in the areas around Haukelifjell, either with the ordinary courses or in the surrounding terrain. Current spots are:
- Store Nup
- Vesle Nup
Location on request
If your group has four participants or more, we also have the opportunity to come and hold courses at the cabin, the nearest water, or at the top of the nearest ski center in the Hovden – Haukelifjell – Røldal area. We are always looking for new spots, but you need large areas without trees and easily hilly landscape. Iced water usually works well for courses. Preferably, it should be reasonably windproof, so exposed peaks usually work better than down in the valley.
