Being able to snow kite means you can leave the crowds behind, ditch the T-bars and make your own way up the mountain to create your own tracks.
After traversing across the ridges and up the slopes, it's time to drift your kite and use the wind and gravity to carve, slash and rip your way back down.
It's such an exhilarating way to use your kiting skills and opens up a winter wonderland of adventures for you to enjoy.
This intensive snow kiting weekender, right here in Thredbo, 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.
Assuming you already know how to kitesurf and snowboard or ski to a basic level; on this Thredbo tour you will learn how to put your two skills together and then add the safety element so you can travel anywhere with snow in the world... like Alaska!
What you'll learn

What's this about Alaska?
