Ever Tried Snowkiting?

Fri Mar 31, 2006 5:43 am

Snowkiting is the latest adrenaline sport to hit the slopes in Europe. The sport uses canopy-shaped airfoils to pull and lift skiers and boarders over the snow.
Real experts can go upwind or downwind, jump almost 100ft in the air, slip in a spread eagle, land with a pirouette and then carry on.

Anyone tried it?

Not really, I'm afraid I would land in hospital after my first try (I'm the sports Murphy in person). But it sounds like fun  Smile
