Hai out there,

if you are looking for a nice place to go snowkiting, that is easy and fast to reach, is wide and flat, has a lot of wind most of the time, always enough snow, ...

Go to Laax /Flims ( last station before the T-bar lift, Vorab Glacier 2500 m )

Only ten minutes from the Highway-to Chur.

The only problem is, you have to buy a ticket for the complete day. But we already negotiate with some responsible persons to stop this. Perhaps we will succeed.

Greetings

Hi dude :wink:

As you might know, I'm a very active Laax snowkiter.

For me, the ticket issue is no problem, because I have the Top-Card :smile:

One question, though, with whom are you in contact with? I'm a bit scared because of safety issues. I saw guys kiting on the slopes instead of the wide area away from the slopes and one let his kite come down pretty near the T-bar lift.

Maybe we could work on some "rules" or big sign for everyone on the Vorab?

What do you think?

Fly safe!

Hai Robin,

sorry but I dont know you !!

I am very interested in safety !

I try to make my pupils responsible kiters, that have a look at other kiters and all people around. I teach them all about safety and give them a good education in handling for the kite.

I must admit, I dont like the idea of rules on a kiting spot. Lets wait for what the future brings. I hope there will be more responsible pilots with a good education in kiting.

What is a TOP card ?

I never heard about it. We tried to convince the responsible person, I dont know his name,
that kiters should be allowed to go up with a one trip ticket, Kite around all day, and go down with the board or skies.

Is this a TOP Card ???

Greetings

Manfred

Nice picture, if you let me do, I will put in on my homepage !!

I was just over in Engelberg, west of Chur and no snow below 1800 m. They have a nice large valley too free of cliffs, cables and other snow hazards. It was all green when I was there unfortunately. Brought the Blade along and everything. Congratulations on finally getting some snow! It really came down well about a week ago at the lower altitudes. I will try to check out the area around Chur next year!

Good snowkiteboarding!

Ah, no the Top-Card is the season-ticket for Laax and Klosters/Davos.

Anyway, I just do quick 15-30 minute sessions on the Vorab. Then I'm done and ready to hit the slopes (or off-slopes) again...

I'm just a bit worried that they could say: "Kiting forbidden". Because this is my "home" spot in winter.
