What's Included: Lessons and camps include all necessary kites and harnesses; you must bring your own protective gear (a helmet is mandatory) and skis or snowboard. We operate our school with a maximum of 2 students per instructor to maximize your learning potential and enjoyment.
What is covered: We will strive to pair students of similar experience levels, so that each group's needs are met. If you are a total newbie, we will start with trainer kites and kite theory to build your experience from scratch. Don't fear however, we find that even complete beginners are generally riding significant distances by the end of day 1. More experienced kite fliers are often holding their ground, or even riding upwind by the end of that first day. This is why we love to teach on snow, your progress is double or triple what it is in the water.
What to expect: Dress warm in layers. Imagine you are going to start out dressed as if you were downhill skiing and riding a long chair lift in between runs (meaning short periods of activity). As the day progresses, your activity level will increase nearly to the extent of cross-country skiing. You may need to remove a layer, so plan ahead.
Protective gear list: a ski/snowboard helmet (mandatory), knee and elbow pads (recommended), and butt/hip pads (optional).
