Checklist - take with you

Pack for your snowkite Hardangervidda lesson: ski/snowboard boots, goggles, sun cream with a high UV factor, lip balm, warm clothes like when you go skiing, thermos with a hot drink, snack/lunch, warm socks, quality warm gloves, balaclava helmet or a hat to have under the helmet (it is good to cover your face also).

As a beginner, can I kite alone in 2 hours?

Yes, if you are handy, you can try to control the kite for yourself after two hours. Especially if you have experience with sailing, or if you are a good skier. But it is not a rule.

Won't the kite take me far away or too high?

This is exactly the reason why you have an experienced instructor with you, who asks about your weight in advance. The instructor will choose the right snowkite size according to your weight and for the given wind force. In addition, the guide wouldn't let you go kiting if the wind was too strong.

Can I take my helmet?

No, our helmet has a built-in intercom.

Can I reach a speed of 50 km/h?

This is one of the best questions about snowkiting! As a beginner, you can reach a speed of about 35 km/h. As advanced, you can reach a speed of about 65 km/h. And if you are as fast as Christopher Krug, you reach 118 km/h! (World wide speed ranking 2009)

Won't I be cold in the beginning?

No, you warm up the most in the beginning! You move a lot, you learn, you sit, you get up, you stand, learn snowkite basics, skiingt with kite, you try another snowkite equipment.

Will I have wet clothes?

Not so much, certainly not as much as on a snowboard.

Is it "Haugastol" or "Haugastøl" snowkite?

Haugastøl is the name in Norwegian. The best with Haugastøl is the almost unlimited amount of different kite skiing spots. Haugastøl has become the Mecca for snowkiting in Norway, but also worldwide.
