Where to snowkite?
A question we hear often is; where can I ride? Anywhere really! Just not on the commercial ski pistes! The perfect place for any beginner to look for is farmland, in winter the fields are covered with a thick layer of snow providing you with a great playground, do make sure you ask permission first though! Frozen lakes are also awesome to ride, whether ice or snow they provide enough open space to have a blast. If the ice is clean you could even use ice skates!
Hills & mountains, here is where things start to really be fun, having a snowkite is like having your own personal ski lift that enables you to ride uphill. Hills and mountains also require a bit more skill to safely navigate, the rougher the terrain the more tricky things can get so before heading up those mountains make sure you have your skills sorted and prepare accordingly.
