Snowkiting Lessons, Switzerland

Snowkiting Lessons • Learn to Snow Kite • Explore the Swiss Alps • Experienced Instructors

Snowkiting lessons teach various levels of snowkiting in Switzerland. In many ways snowkiting is easier than kitesurfing due to less friction and thus requiring less power (i.e lighter winds, smaller kites). Practiced either on skis or on a snowboard; the snowkiting lessons cover all aspects of snow kiting also known as kite-skiing. The beginner courses cover all the skills required to get going and the improver snow kiting course (kitesurfing cross-over course) develops skills and awareness to climb mountains and safely plan trips in the back country.
