Snowkiting on the slopes of Tonale Pass

Activity time 3 hours

05 November - 30 April 2023

WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Try a fun new winter sport, packed with adrenalin and suitable for all. Snowkiting is in fact the “snow” version of “kitesurfing”: driven by the wind, you will glide on your snowboard or skis, controlling your kite with a bar. Snowkiting will see you zoom across the snow, propelled only by the wind, without the need for any kind of ski lift.
Forget crowded slopes and make the most of every minute of your time to have fun in total freedom!

INTERESTING FACTS/INFO

Have you ever experienced the wind at Tonale Pass? A dead cert: it blows (almost) all the time. So why not take advantage?

WHO ARE WE

The Nikite Snowkite School is an Amateur Sports Association that every winter offers outdoor activities at Tonale Pass. A team of CONI- qualified instructors guarantee professionalism, safety and reliability from November to the end of February.
The school was set up thanks to a team of 4 amateur skikiters who have used word of mouth to promote and raise awareness about this sport since 2012. This school is in fact the first and only one in Italy that has been qualified to train new snowkiting instructors since 2017. The 4 founders, one of whom is currently Italian Snowkiting Champion, offer complete personalised lessons in total safety, fully meeting the needs of every single pupil, also thanks to the favourable conditions of the sites used and personal experience gained in the field.
