If you haven't seen it on TV or read it in any of the major magazines, kiteboarding is the fastest growing extrememe sport in the world. They say it is growing faster than skateboarding, surfing or any other extreme sport out there.

Now skiers, snowboarders and mountaineers have realized the potential of using kites to cross long distances and reach new heights in record time. The backcountry scene is rapidly growing. The most aggressive snowkiters are slowly being drawn to the flying aspect. They use the kites to climb the mountain, turn around and then peel away from the face of the slope, sometimes reaching heights of 150 feet with flights exceeding 90 seconds.

Learning to snow kite is fun, easy and very accessible. No more lift tickets or lift lines. Just throw on a snowboard or skis, grab your kite and find a frozen lake or field with snow, and you will soon be cutting your way through powder trails.

Group Lessons
We offer a four hour group lesson for the beginner. We begin by understanding the wind window and how it affects the kite. We then go through safety precautions, learning how to fly a trainer kite, kite setup and tuning, launching and landing. Next, you're ready to combine the two. So throw your skis or snowboard on and you're ready to go explore the sport of snow kiting.
Private Lessons
Private lessons are available for both beginners and those kiters looking to advance their skills from water to snow.
Where
Lessons are available on Cass Lake, Orchard Lake, and Stony Creek Metro Park.
