Short Version
This is a Friday to Sunday course in kiting on snow. You can expect quick progression and a lot of fun. The base is on Haukelifjell in Norway.
  • Beautiful winter landscape
  • Action filled snow sport
  • Suitable for all ages
What you can expect
The course aims to make you an independent kiter, so you can manage alone with your own equipment. Courses are laid up with a lot of kite flying and fun, but there will still be a strong emphasis on safety. We hope we can get everyone to kite with ski/board during the course, but of course wind conditions and individual progression plays a part here.

Main topics of the course will be:
  • Navigation of the kite
  • Understanding of the kite fly area and power zones
  • Safety
  • Launching and landing of the kite
  • Rigging

To ski/board with a kite 
Assessing conditions and kite spots
Selection of equipment

Wind Warranty
It matters to us that participants will feel satisfied and that they are getting value for their money. If the weather is difficult and there is not enough wind to complete the course in a satisfactory manner, we are flexible enough to offer you a spot in another course for free. We will complete the course if there is a minimum of 4 hours of enough wind to fly the kites.

Courses start with theory Friday night at 9 and lasts until Sunday afternoon around 4.30. Saturday and Sunday we are out about 7 hours per day.
