America's Wildest Winter Adventures

Snowkiting

The Venue: Colorado, California, Utah, Minnesota, and more.

The Adventure: Clip into skis, loft a parachute in the wind, and zip off across a frozen lake or snowy field. The sport of kite skiing has grown from a fringe activity to a near-mainstream sport, with guides and clinics available around the country. Skiers and snowboarders tether themselves to the nylon canopies with seat harnesses, while control bars pull parachute lines to regulate speed and direction of travel in the wind.
