Int. Snowkite OpenOur editorial team always tries to provide detailed and accurate information, but it is possible that events undergo changes that we are unable to update in real time. Exact details on dates, times and programmes can be obtained directly from the organiser.
The Int. Snowkite Open will take place from 5th to 6th February 2022 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: Snowkiting 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.
