Int. Snowkite Open
Int. Snowkite Open - Stunts and adrenaline for an event not to be missed of Freestyle and Race.
The Int. Snowkite Open will take place from 8th to 10th February 2019 at Lake Reschen in Vinschgau with different competitions in the disciplines Long Distance, Freestyle and Race.
At first sight it seems that the inventor of this sport wasn’t able to decide between one and the other sport. However, at the latest on closer inspection it is obvious: Snow kiting requires fitness, technique and many skills.
In addition, you need a suitable stunt kite and skis or a snowboard. As soon as the wind picks up, you can fly the kite and it will pull you through snow-covered landscapes – with maximum speed of about 100 kilometres per hour.
Snow kiting on Lake Reschen
First and foremost, Lake Reschen near Graun in the upper part of Vinschgau is known for the church steeple that rises up out of the water. For several years this lake has also been a popular meeting point for kiters – for kite surfers in summer and for snow kiters in winter. Regularly there are held races and competitions, too.
After the successful organization of different snow kite events over the past years, during the Snowkite Open there is scheduled again the Italian Championship: with three days full of sport and entertainment.
