If you have ever wanted to try snowkiting out for the first time or you want to compete then this is a must attend winter event. Come on out and see what snowkiting is all about. There will be pros and amat......eurs from around the country showcasing their skills, so you don’t want to miss out. Be there or Be square.

Once the sun goes down, the nightlife begins with parties both Friday and Saturday night. A raffle and Awards Ceremony will take place Saturday evening.

Wind or no wind this event is gonna be a blast. If the wind doesn’t blow then there is Discovery Ski Mountain just minutes away or you can play on the rails and kickers at the event site with the aid of snowmobiles, banshee bungees, and winches. Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is located just a short drive from the event site so you can always go and relax in the hot springs.
