General Information

For safety reasons, you should learn snowkiting in a professional school. In the snowkite course you will learn weather & wind, the basics of kite handling and important maneuvers in the snow. 

The Swiss Snowkiting School adjusts the courses to the level and experience of the participants. We offer courses for beginners, advanced and intermediate courses for kite surfers, who have little experience on the snow with foilkites. For experienced kiters there is also a guiding for snowkite backcountry tours on the Simplon Pass.

With a good training, it is possible to safely practice snowkiting with skis or snowboards.

Fun and adventure are not missing out!
