Snowkiting in Austria

Snowkiter im Pulverschnee

Imagine: after a snowy night you have the 8 o'clock ski lift to the mountain and you draw one line after the other into the glittering powder. The whole ski area is yours! 

With snowkiting you get exactly that - only without overcrowded slopes or queues at the lifts.

Your kite is your super ski card that is valid for life, your new gondola that will take you to the most beautiful powder slopes. Farewell to the elevator queue. Pure freedom! Our ski touring snowkite camp takes you to the best snowkite area in Austria - where exactly depends on the current snow and wind conditions.

The snow kite paradise on your doorstep 

Spot & wind in Austria

Carinthia is an insider tip among snow kiters. Thanks to the gentle mountain ridges and wide alpine pastures, you can kite safely in almost all wind directions. We will let you know the exact spot.

From bed to board

Accommodation Snowkitecamp

From bed to board. The rustic hut. The living room and the warmth from the fireplace are simply wonderful after a day on the mountain. We can start right from the hut, so we can really use the day. We are provided with breakfast at the hut, dinner is optional. The hut owner still cooks himself, and the overall package is just right.

The mountain is yours

Activities at our snowkitecamp

Ski Touring:

Every morning we start our tour with touring skis or snowshoes up to the spacious plateaus (duration approx. 2 hours). There we unpack the kites and snowkite as long as possible to be back at the accommodation just in time before sunset.

Apart from the fact that we climb the mountain together, we take a closer look at the topic "ski touring" in order to get to our kite spot as energy-saving as possible. You will get insights into the right technique and what to consider when it comes to step length, step frequency, turns or descents. We also deal with the subject of avalanche awareness and practice in case of an emergency.

Snowkiting:

Here you will learn step by step kite handling in the mountains from three snow kite professionals. How to launch and land safely yourself, ride up and down the mountains and use your kite as a lift. For beginners and advanced!

Detailed information on the Snowkitecamp in Carinthia

The snow kite paradise on your doorstep. 

We have briefly summarized all the useful information for you.

Dieses Touren /Snowkitecamp wird von den Naturfreunden Österreich veranstaltet. 

Membership costs 50,- a year and offers many advantages.

In particular, the included insurance for outdoor mountain sports is a win / win for snow kiters in the worst-case scenario. 

The entire kite material is included in the camp price. For this we use the latest Peak4 by Flysurfer . These particularly light kites have been specially developed for backcountry snowkiting and help you to make rapid progress.

This camp is for both beginners and advanced snowkiters.

We offer the highest quality. Our many years of experience as snow kite instructors guarantee you quick learning success. Usually you have to set your goals again within this week - no, we are by no means overbearing. You get as many practice hours concentrated in one week as you do in Austria in several years. This will help you learn a lot. Kite handling is the be-all and end-all whether on the water or on the snow. That's exactly what you are going to perfect here in Norway.

You get amazingly good light wind skills and learn how to loop up the mountain. You will also practice your kite relaunch and become a better kiter in general. 

We have heard the sentence many times: 'I no longer need training'. However, we see every little mistake and can correct it. We also believe that there is always something to learn.

The camp starts on the day of arrival at 10:00 a.m. in Upper Carinthia. We recommend travelling there with your own car or in car pools. 

We will provide you the exact location with your offer.

We would be happy to send you an offer for cancellation and / or travel insurance.
