Events Description

Each year, snow kiting continues to grow as a sport, and so does our Snow kiter’s weekend. Open to newcomers and experienced enthusiasts alike, the weekend includes demos, lessons and a swap meet. Our own Stephen Elmhirst is a qualified Snow kite instructor and will be on hand for lessons and sharing tips on the ice. Be sure to say hello!

The purpose of this event is to widen the circle of enthusiasm for Snow kiting, to help new Kiters network and find avenues to progress, to introduce Rice Lake as a riding area, & to share the stoke.

For $20 a beginner day guest has access to the poker run, all Snow kiting activities and will receive an initial “flight lesson” with a smaller trainer kite. Those with their own equipment can hit the powder on the lake.
Day guests also have the use of all the Resort’s recreation facilities such as the indoor pool, hot tub/sauna, weight room and outdoor activities such as skating and cross country skiing.

Trainer kite lesson gives students basic fundamentals of power kite flying (approximately 45 minutes). Lessons are weather dependent.

Those with their own equipment can hit the powder on the lake. Day guests also have the use of all the Resort’s recreation facilities such as the indoor pool, hot tub/sauna, weight room and outdoor activities such as skating and cross country skiing.

New participants should be aware that this is a wind dependent sport and so we are at the mercy of the weather.
