Extensive meadows the size of a football field comprise the snowkite terrain in Achenkirch. The location provides perfect training and wind conditions.

Here’s how it works: Snowkiting involves using downhill skis or a snowboard and a specially designed steerable kite similar to that used in kite surfing. The only other thing you need is some wind and a snow covered open area. The sport is easy to learn, within one hour, beginners manage to steer the kite and immediately afterwards can make their first attempts wearing skis or a snowboard.
