They skim over the frozen lake on skis and snowboards, perform daredevil jumps, swing their colourful kites around – and shoot off again. Snowkiting was pretty much invented on Lake Silvaplana.
The snowkiting school here, Swiss Kitesurf, has been shaping the development of this fashionable pursuit since 1994. Anyone at home on a piste will learn quickly. To keep the risk of injury to a minimum, it is strongly recommended that novices take a beginners’ course.
Please bring ski or snowboard equipment (it is easier to learn on skis) and a helmet if you have one.
