Int. Snowkite Open
Int. Snowkite Open - Stunts and adrenaline for an event not to be missed of Freestyle and Race.
From 26th to 28th January 2018, will be held at the Reschensee in Vinschgau, Int. Snowkite Open which will see athletes compete in the disciplines of Freestyle and Race.
At first sight it seems that the inventor of this kind of 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 kilometers 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 Snow kite World and European Championships in the last years there is scheduled again the Italian Championship: with three days full of sport and entertainment and contests in the categories freestyle and race, each for ski and snowboard.
