Have you ever wanted to try something else? Do you like flying kites, snowboarding or skiing? Are you open to new experiences? Try our snowkite trip, the new snowboarding/skiing! With the help of a kite and your snowboard/ski gear, you will fly over a vast snow surface in the French Alps. In cooperation with our IKO and KNWV (professional and certified snowkiters), we have chosen an incredible and accessible location in the famous French town Alp D’huez.
On location, there will be snowkite clinics and special snowkite equipment available. Snow-kiting in the Alps is a unique experience! The area has beautiful ski and snowboard slopes… and in wintertime wind. You will fly meters high in the open air of the mountains surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. Come and discover an unknown snowkite spot and experience your extra snow boost with us.
The stunning snowkite location is next to the slopes in the famous French village Alp D’Huez. This location is suitable for beginners and advanced snow kiters. Snow-kiting is a young and developing sport but has started to spread only recently. Many adrenaline junkies try insane jumps with the help of strong mountain winds in the area.
Endless snowfields and beautiful mountains make this place ideal for snow-kiting. At a height of 2800 meters and with clear weather, you will have an unforgettable view of the French Alps. Alp D’ Huez is a wind and snow reliable area with 250 km of skiing and snowboarding slopes. If the wind speeds are too low, there will be an alternative. You can use a day ski pass to shoot down the slopes or slide and jump over at the fun park. After an action-filled day in the snow, you can relax or join the ‘apres-ski’ party in the village.

SNOW KITE LESSONS / RENTALS
We are teaching snow-kiting in collaboration with the best kite school and local guide, Sebastien. He is an expert in the mountains and started a small, but professional snowkite school out of pure passion! Have you ever tried snowboarding, skiing or kiting? If not, then it is important to take some lessons otherwise you cannot enter the mountain. If yes, then you can snowkite and the standard package is sufficient! Our team will help you find your way and show you the area. With our snow-kiting trip, your level does not matter. Everyone is welcome! At your booking, make sure to note your level of experience so we can best prepare your snow-kiting adventure.
SKI AREA, LOCATION & NIGHTLIFE
Alp D’Huez, the name probably rings a bell. It is well known from an etape of the Tour de France. Further, it is also one of the most beautiful ski areas in France with 250 km of slopes and 300 days of sun per year. The ski lifts and slopes are suitable for every level and it would be impossible to not enjoy yourself! For an evening out, the village has a variety of lively bars and delicious restaurants. As well, there are a great deal of ski and snowboard schools, heated public swimming pools and sauna’s at your disposal. It will be more than enough to enjoy to the fullest for one week!
You will be staying with a group in a warm cosy chalet right next to the ski and snowboard slopes. The chalet is equipped with everything your heart desires including space to cook for lunch or/and breakfast for yourself. You will be residing with other snowkiters in a room that has an en suite shower and toilet. The location of the chalet itself is perfect for a excellent stay.
