LEARN SNOWKITING!

At our Snowkite Course for Beginners where we go through everything you need to become an independent snowkiter!

With the right conditions a lot of our participants are up and riding already on the first day of the course!

But we also spend time learning the right safety procedures, basic wind knowledge, and special precautions that are important to take when one is kiting at high speeds and can cover great distances in deep snow.

Our Course Program and theory lessons are finely tuned after 20+ years of operations. As an added bonus you will also receive a recap of the course on e-mail.

We hope to inspire you with our Passion! 😃
