Yeah you should! Knowing how to kite on water, you´ll handle it in no time, and it´s SOOO much more fun then the slopes! Will bring some more footage and good videos this season, so let it snow - let it snow - let it snow!

Check out this one from Hardangervidda in Norway last season, a bit early in season so not that much snow, but still good:

Summit County - Frisco, Colorado has a lot to offer new snowkiters. Also has tons of ski resorts in the area if the wind doesn't work out.

It looks amazing, will definitely check it out! and really glad to hear that you can do it in Europe, not just the U.S. I really can't wait to try this!

We´ve got the biggest playground in northern Europe (biggest mountain platou) and wind probably 6 of 7 days up there! (And even if there´s no wind in the main area you´ll still find some if you know where to go)
You´re welcome! :)
