Snowkiting and Other Kiting Sports
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Flying a kite may seem like a simple childhood activity, but childhood kiters have made it more exciting than ever. Hold on to your hats and your kites! Whoosh! Wild kiters have invented the hair-raising sports of snowkiting, kitesurfing, and kite buggying.
 
2     If you look up into the cold Montana skies, you might be surprised to see a kite in the air. After all, it is not a typical winter sport. What you might not know right away is that someone is attached to the bottom of the kite...and he or she is using the kite to fly above the snowy slopes. To become airborne, the skier or snowboarder is harnessed to 100-foot reins and can launch as high as 40 feet into the air.
 
3     One of the best parts of snowkiting is getting up into the quiet atmosphere. It's so still that kiters say they can hear their heartbeat and their breathing. They love the snowy landscapes, although snowkiting might not be much fun in a blizzard. Snowkiters have a wild, windblown experience. As one snowkiter explained, "It's such a blast! You can go out and have a great time in an hour and a half. It is amazing to see what the sport has become."
