The savvy snowkite instructors at Colorado Kite Force acquaint pupils with the exhilarating, easy-to-learn sport of snowkiting during two- or four-hour personalized lessons. In the two-hour beginner ground-school lesson, experienced snow-surfers impart fundamental skills, such as how to use the wind’s most powerful components and how to distract a menacing tornado with card tricks. Small groups of boot-clad students fly a four-line foil or inflatable power kite and discuss adapting snowkiting abilities to kitesurfing after the snow melts. During part II of the course—for which acolytes must have taken the first section or demonstrate necessary skills to the instructor—fledgling kite wranglers don their own skis and start skimming over the ground under the close watch of teaching eyes. A combined four-hour lesson covers the material of the two shorter sessions.

Alternatively, skilled snowkiters can indulge their passion by renting a kite for the day. Colorado Kite Force provides kites and harnesses, but all students should tote their own skis or snowboard and don hats, helmets, gloves, and goggles. Before the appointed day, peruse Colorado Kite Force’s safety tips and FAQ to prevent embarrassing faux pas such as showing up without a required cummerbund.

Colorado Kite Force

After ten years of surfing and sailing around the world, Anton Rainold finally became a record-setter in an entirely different sport. In 2003, he transferred his skills to a cooler climate and became the first man in the US to open a snowkite-specific shop and school, as Summit Daily News reported. In the Colorado Kite Force shop, Rainold's team outfits shoppers for applications such as backcountry kiting, park and freestyle riding, or kiteboarding on the water in the summer. In the snow, they lead lessons for children and families, sharing techniques on how to stay safe, secure, and ready to lasso an adorable baby zephyr at any moment. After several hours, students are ready to strap into skis or snowboards, grab the control bar, and speed across the snow under the power of a majestic four-line kite.
