The exciting adventure of gift-giving continues! This Holiday Season gift your beloved adrenaline junkie a winter rush – snow-kiting in BC!
If you are wondering what to give the adventure and adrenaline junkie who has everything – maybe it’s time to think out of the box. Snow-kiting in BC!
If you know someone who’s always up for a thrill, consider gifting some serious winter fun – incredible and exciting snow-kiting in BC. Snow-kiting is an exhilarating ride on the, you guessed it, snow. A combination of kiteboarding skills and snow-covered mountains, bowls, lakes or fields, snow-kiting is gaining in popularity alongside its summer counterpart. And, like kitesurfing, with the proper instruction, it’s not that hard to get up and rolling – or boarding.
Snow-kiting is distinct from other winter alpine sports in that the kite allows the snow-kiter to travel up and downhill no matter the wind direction. As it becomes more popular, the sport is getting more and more diverse. Winter adventurers use their kites to travel further distances and expert enthusiasts push the boundaries of speed, freestyle, big air, and backcountry touring.
The West Coast – some of the best snow-kiting in BC
Canada is considered a popular destination for snow-kiting. Popular snow-kiting terrain includes frozen lakes, but more and more, adventurers are looking up, up, up into the mountains for the best in snow and wind.
Around Whistler, BC is among Canada’s pre-eminent snow-kiting locations. It’s often windy in the winter and the number of places available to learn the sport, build skills, and establish mastery seems almost endless. Between frozen lakes and the breathtaking backcountry, accessed on touring skis or by snowmobile, the choice of terrain is simply spectacular.
With good winds and big kites, experienced snow-kiters can enjoy some seriously big air where they can perform amazing aerobatics. The snow-kiting speed record is a whopping 118 Km/h (73.5 mph)! But, before you can fly… you have to slide. Take a lesson!
