Snowkite in La Thuile
La Thuile owns a wide area for the practice of snowkite which lies at 2.188 m at the Little-Saint-Bernard pass. The area is definitely ideal for snowkiters, who can surf while being guided by the wind.
It is a funny sport which must be tried: to love it one only needs an* introductory course* which provides basic information about the winds and the equipment needed.
Snowkite: how does it work?
Snowkite can be practiced with a kite. Thanks to the wind traction, the kite flies and hauls the skier, who is able to surf on the snow and have fun with jumps and evolutions. By exploiting the wind’s power one can both ascend and descend slopes and, thus, not use the ski facilities to move.
