Snowkiting and Other Kiting Sports
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Flying a kite may seem like a simple childhood activity, but that childhood pastime has become 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. Some people think that the term "snowkiting" was first used in Europe, and the sport may have begun there, too.
 
2     If you look up into the cold winter skies, you might be surprised to see a kite in the air. After all, kite flying is not typically done in snowy weather. 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, snow-covered plains, or frozen lakes.
 
3     One of the best parts of snowkiting or kite skiing is sailing up into the atmosphere above the world. 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! It is amazing to see what the sport has become."
