Snow kiting as the equivalent to kite surfing in summer offers a new challenge and lots of fun - kiting in the snow and an ideal preparation for kite surfing in summer.
Silvaplana has always been a mecca for wind sports and in 1993 we opened the first kite school in the world here on Lake Silvaplana. Since then we have always remained true to our basic ideals: to bring the fun and enjoyment of kite surfing to our students. The technique and equipment has developed enormously in the last few years and snow kiting is now a safe sport that can be learned in just a few hours.
Today our snow kite offers are very diverse, in addition to the normal courses in Silvaplana we also offer lessons on the Bernina Pass and other places. Thanks to our innovative team we have managed to improve the learning experience of our students over the years; through new teaching techniques and new equipment. With over 200 snow kite students per winter we are probably the largest school worldwide.
In winter we use special winter soft-kites with depower and a good safety system. We change our kites every year so that our students always learn with the newest equipment. In particular we make sure that the kites are easy to control and have a good safety system.
Every student is also provided with a harness and helmet. The ski or snowboard equipment must be brought by each student.
