5 reasons why snowkiting is lit
Posted on: November 16th, 2017 by Roy van Baarsen

Snowkiting is for everyone

Whether you’re young or old, male or female, everyone can learn how to snowkite. All you need is a kite and pair of skis or snowboard. Add some wind and snow and you’re ready to go. One of the main reasons why snowkiting is so accessible, is the low risk. You can practice on flat surfaces covered by a thick layer of snow with minimum wind speed. Once people get the hang of it, a new world opens up to them.

 

Enjoying the Freedom

Isn’t it beautiful to be surrounded by mountains covered with fresh snow? Snowkiting gives you freedom and the ability to explore the mountains in an incredible way. You can basically go anywhere you want by flying your kite. Climbing up any mountain up to 45 degrees is challenging, but certainly feasible. Once you’re up there, you may continue discovering uphill or snowboard/ski downwards. Whether it’s flat or hilly, a kite can literally extend your boundaries.

Endless Fun

When you’re snowkiting, time is just a number. The sport offers unlimited adventures and adrenaline rushes. It’s very addicting and provides the feeling of freedom and excitement. Whereas some enjoy to cruise through fresh snow, others like to jump or glide. Mountains create the ultimate playground for freestylers and freeriders whereas flat surfaces are perfect to practice as a beginner or to race.

Mix it up, keep it fresh and share the stoke!

Affordable

All you need is your gear (which you might already partly have), wind and snow and you can start riding the white gold! Drive to any spot you want and enjoy the free slopes. No need to worry about expensive lift or parking tickets anymore. A good quality powerkite or dedicated snowkite will last for years if you take care of it. Do regularly check for wear and tear especially on the flying lines, safety systems and control gear.

Social

One of the most important things in snowkiting is enjoying life with your friends to the fullest. If you’re new to the sport, it’s very easy to connect with people and find communities. There’s always a good vibe amongst the riders whether it’s before, during or after a snowkite session. The benefits of riding together are of course plentiful; you can learn from each other, have a race and challenge each other and it is a lot safer to explore in a group. Don’t forget to hit the bar afterwards!
