2018 sees Zephyr Tours offering it its first mainland kite adventure; it’s short, it’s great value, and it’s awesome.
If you’re not kitesurfing in the tropics this winter, then this is for you. Combine your kitesurfing skills with your snowboarding or skiing to open up a whole new world of snowkiting.
This value-packed weekender will introduce you to world #1 snow kite instructor and back-country guide Jennie Milton and have you hanging with the ever professional Zephyr Team.
The Denman Hotel with its apre bar and spectacular alpine backdrop is the perfect place to wind down after your intensive day of snow kiting instruction in the Mt Kosciusko back-country.
This weekend will have you leaving the mountain educated, confident and ready for more snowkiting adventures.

AUGUST 23-25 | SEPT 6 – 9 | SEPT 20 – 22
Leave the crowds behind, ditch the T-bars and make your own way up the mountain to create your own tracks with your kite.
This intensive snow kiting weekender, right here in Australia is led by professional snow kiter and backcountry guide, Jennie Milton who froths on kiting and can’t wait to share her passion with you.
Where we stay
We recommend joining us at the family owned and run Denman Hotel, right in the heart of Thredbo village.
With the best restaurant in town, most enjoyable Après bar (including top shelf rums and the most knowledgeable bar tender we know) and the quiet Library Bar for our Alaskan presentation, this hotel has it all, not to mention it’s proximity to the lifts.
Included is a full buffet breakfast and they conveniently allow luggage storage after checkout and a shower at the end of your departure day.
For solo travellers, join the Facebook group to find someone to share with or email us for a hookup. Alternatively, feel free to bring a non-kiting mate, your spouse or a sibling to enjoy the mountain with you.
Make your own way to Thredbo by car, bus or plane. Park in the overnight carpark as you won’t need your car for the weekend.
If you are renting gear or needing extra ski or snowboarding lessons, please allow plenty of time to get there or arrange a few nights before your tour.
Tour ends 4pm after 2 intense days of exercise, you may be fatigued, so please take it easy if you are driving back on the last day.
