Once sweep across a snowy plain in the middle of the Swiss mountains and use the wind and weather conditions in your favor? The winter sport snowkiting offers you all this and much more! On your skis or snowboard, a kite pulls you over the Simplon Pass and offers you an experience in a class of its own. The breathtaking view of a winter wonderland completes this snow sports experience.
The Swiss Snowkiting School offers you a wide range of courses in the trendy sport of snowkiting. The school puts special emphasis on quality and professionalism. It is located in the beautiful canton of Valais, directly above the city of Brig on the Simplon Pass. The top of the pass opens up a true paradise for snowkiters: on more than four different areas, snowkiters of all levels can take advantage of the perfect wind conditions
The Simplon Pass is located between the Swiss Rhone Valley and the Italian Val d'Ossola, thus connecting north and south not only geographically but also weather-wise. These special circumstances often lead to pressure differences, which results in good wind. Thus, the entire pass is endowed with perfect wind conditions that can be used for any level, depending on the location. In addition, the weather mostly comes from the south, which makes for beautiful and sunny winter days on the hill.
The school's private courses are entirely based on the experience and knowledge of the participants. Private lessons can be offered for any level, beginners as well as advanced riders can learn or improve skills in these courses. Inexperienced snowkiters can advance to level 3B, while experienced ones can advance to level 4A. The levels are based on the scale of the Swiss Snowkite Training (SST). Are you already an experienced kitesurfer on the water? Transition courses that take you from the water to the snow are also available! Here you will be introduced to the differences and similarities between kitesurfing and the winter form of snowkiting and will be able to make the transition from one to the other. For more advanced snowkiters, so-called "backcountry sessions" are also offered, which include more challenging tours
An experienced and trained instructor accompanies each course participant and can therefore concentrate on the respective problems and questions. Your instructor will not only teach you technique and basic skills, but will also teach you how to assess weather conditions and how to use the forces of nature for your sporting purposes. Safety instructions, right of way rules on the slopes and tips for safe driving are of course not to be missed. An active, adventurous and very instructive course day awaits you on the Simplon Pass!
If you arrive by car: winter tires are a prerequisite! We work exclusively with foil kites / mat kites There are also packages available that combine your snowkiting experience with one or more overnight stays In the private course you will be assigned your own instructor Skis and snowboards are not included, so you have to bring them yourself
