In 1990, Stefan Popprath opened his kite school in Silvaplana - the first in Switzerland and one of the first ever. Since 1994, the pioneers have been teaching kitesurfing in summer and snowkiting in winter on Lake Silvaplana. The kite school also has an extensive kite shop including rental and test equipment.
