Snowkiter on the Simplon Pass, Canton Valais.

The high plateau of the Simplon Pass above Brig is the perfect place for snowkiting. Surrounded by magnificent high mountain scenery, let the wind help create your own personal ski lift!

On skis or snowboard and attached to a kite, everyone and anyone can try their first small jumps. Beginners should start with a course – for their own safety. The Snow Kite School is on the Simplon Pass and can be easily reached by car. With actionpacked days, resting is strictly for evenings! Ideally in nearby Brig, where good value for money accommodation and everything a town can offer are to be found.

Information

Have fun but take care:

ski touring and freeriding Off-piste powder skiing can be fantastic fun – and incredibly addictive too! Which means that safety is sometimes forgotten. Sensible freeriders always take an avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel in their backpack and always wear a helmet and back support. They are also up to date with the latest avalanche reports and check the latest information at the freeride checkpoints in the lift stations before setting out, while those unfamiliar with the area only go out with a local mountain guide or winter sports instructor.
See www.bergsportschulen.ch or www.snowsports.ch for more information.
