Fun Kite Episode:

So today when I woke up I saw all the snow in London got and I started to become excited because it was supposed to be very windy today! I really wanted to have another go at using my skis and snowkite, but then I remembered that my sister has been borrowing them for a week now and will still have them for another week

.

When I lent them to her there wasn't supposed to be snow for another few weeks. Anyway, I was bummed but I decided to go out anyway, but without skis. Man was it ever windy!!!!

We Know Kites

One Stop Shop! Snow kite lessons in Toronto. Snowkiting in Canada or kite skiing is an outdoor winter sport where people use kite power to glide on snow or ice. Many kiters do this in near Toronto Ontario Canada and USA mostly on Ozone Snowkites. We also offer Snowkiting Lessons in Toronto. The skier uses a kite to give them power over for speed at times and also large jumps for experienced kiters. The sport is similar to water-based kiteboarding, however with the footwear used in snowboarding or skiing. The principles of using the kite is the same, but on different surface. In the early days of snowkiting, foil kites were the most common type. Nowadays many kiteboarders use inflatable kites on the water and sometimes on snow.
However, since 2013, newly developed racing foil kites seem to dominate speed races and expedition races, like Red Bull Ragnarok (held on the Norwegian Hardangervidda plateau) and the Vake mini-expedition race (held at Norway's most northern Varanger peninsula). Snowkiting differs from other alpine sports in that it is possible for the snowkiter to travel uphill and downhill with any wind direction. Like kiteboarding, snowkiting can be very hazardous and should be learned and practiced with care. Snowkiting is becoming increasingly popular in places often associated with skiing and snowboarding, right here in Canada and such places as Russia, Iceland, France, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Sweden and the Northern and Central United States. The sport is becoming more diverse as adventurers use kites to travel great distances and sports enthusiasts push the boundaries of freestyle, big air, speed and back country exploration.
