The ski resort of Les Estables adopts snow kiting
The ski resort of Les Estables benefits from excellent wind conditions and exposure, vast uplands and of course, snow. In short, the ideal sports terrain for outdoor enthusiasts.
Snow kiting is the winter version of surf kiting. On a snowboard or on skis, the principle is the same. Imagine yourself being pulled along by a kite blowing in the wind, on a snowboard or on skis … An incredible sensation of gliding and an exhilarating impression of liberty !
Situated between Auvergne and Ardèche, the vast uplands of Mézenc offer a varied, safe, free ride terrain for outdoor pursuits. Riders will appreciate the excellent stats and different exposures to wind found in spots located at the foot of Mont Chaulet, Mont Mézenc (south-south-east) or from the rocher d’Aiglet (north-north-west). In short, spots perfect to ride and to send tricks for the most adventurous !
Beginners who wish to try snow kiting in a safe way will appreciate the friendly welcome and advice given by Didier BOTTA, state-qualified and incidentally French snow kite champion in 2012. He is the manager of the new snow kiting school created last winter in the ski resort of Les Estables (renvoi vers article station village des Estables). Each future rider will have the opportunity to use modern equipment, perfectly adapted to their size and to conditions.
Snow kiting will introduce you to another way of gliding among and enjoying mountains. You will be drawn along by the wind towards new open spaces, away from way-marked trails, where slopes have no importance. During your winter holidays, whether you are on your own, with a partner, family or friends, come and experience exciting sensations !
