Learning to snowkite in the winter offers skiers and snowboarders the chance to get out and ride snowy fields, mountains and be powered just by wind. Snowkiting is your personal free ski-lift. Once you’ve practised a bit you will sail mountains! Snowkiting is considered a lot easier to learn than kitesurfing, for the simple reason that it’s easier to stand up on snow than it is on water (try it if you don’t believe us).

Second half of March 2020
Every march we organize snowkite camp to some well known snowkite Locations. This year we go to Montenegro, where Žabljak, the biggest mountain plateau is placed. Žabljak is place where anyone can snowkite, it all starts with beginner terrain then, when you’re feeling confident, it moves into smaller hills and when you are really ready, there are some stiffer mountain terrains waiting for you. If there are some no wind days, we can go ski in local ski resort Savin Kuk, where are some incredible freeride terrains or go backcountry touring on skies or snowshoes.
