SNOW KITING
We're glad your anxious for the snow! Just wait a bit.
Snow kiting is likely the fastest medium to learn kiteboarding. If you already have skiing or snowboarding skills then you will adapt quite quickly.
Snow does add some additional skills and concerns that can be learned quickly and safely.
As soon as we get some snowo her in eastern NY & CT., we will update this site.
We will include choice sites and conditions for your sessions through the winter.












There are special considerations for the snow kiter.
Only an idiot would think of kiting on land or snow without a helmet. An accidential or intentional kiteloop could cause serious injury or death.
A smart kiter would probably also wear some boddy armour like elbow and kees pads. Don't be an idiot! When kiting in a snow covered area, extra care must be taken to avoid tree stumps, fence posts, hidden rocks, power lines, trees, thin underlying ice, etc..

TAKE SOME EXTRA CARE..        


If you are kiting on a frozen lake, even more care must be taken.
You must assure yourself that there is sufficient ice thickness.
Anything less than 4 inches thick should be avoided! You MUST walk the entire area first. Others on the ice is no assurance that it's ok.
You can't fix stupid! Going thru the ice is NOT something you want to do. Ice that is clear is usually more sound than ice with lots of air bubbles. Thin ice around the edges  of the body of water is bad. go home!

If you've got skiing or snowboarding skills already then you should be ripping along quickly.
This is where owning a trainer kite comes in very handy.
Generally, only one lesson is necessary......
After checking on our lessons packages.
We will resume snow kiting lessons after there is a good snow base.
