Snowkiting in South Tyrol

The wind is blowing up the kite and the ice is shimmering under the sun: We quickly speed up and glide over the frozen Lake Reschen in Vinschgau torn by the kite on our snowboard – a magnificent mountain panorama included.

Snowkiting is a new trend sport in South Tyrol that can be practised on all free areas with good wind conditions. High-altitude lakes such as Lake Reschen are ideal for this exceptional winter sport than can be practised on skis or snowboard instead of a surf board torn by a kite. This is great action and fun!

Snowkiting territories in South Tyrol

The picturesque Lake Reschen in Vinschgau is located at 1,470 m and is mostly covered by a thick layer of ice in winter. The constant wind transforms the like into a snowkiting paradise, while it is used by kitesurfers also in summer too. Optimal conditions for snowkiting fans can be found as well on Lake Haider, slightly south of Lake Reschen.
