The Snow Kite is very similar to Kite Surf Kite but it uses a snowboard table and it is practiced on snow. The sport combines wind's power and the feeling of sliding down the snow driven by a paraglider. There are two types of sails that can be used. There are the kites like "foil" that are more convenient to transport and assemble in the mountains, or you can also use the same that is used in the water for kite surfing which has an inflatable structure.

The snowkiting emerged in the 80's mainly in frozen lakes in countries such as Canada, Austria, Norway, USA, among others. At first what it was done was to glide smoothly through the wind, at present it became an extreme sport that is practiced in the major ski resorts in the world.

In September it is held in Caviahue the Snow Kite Jam, organized by the Argentine Association of Snow Kite. The meeting lasts four days and involves "kiters" across the country, there are also held classes and clinics.

This sport can be practiced by anyone who wants to enjoy the snow, only you need to have basic knowledge of management of mountain and snowboard.

The winter season begins June 20 and runs through early October, until snow allows it.
