We have courses in snowkiting every day from December to April from 9.00.
A snowkite-course for you who want to learn how to kite
During the basic course, you will learn how to handle the kite in a safe way and we go through the equipment and safety. Hopefully we get time to ride it the conditions are good.
I will try to book another beginner for the course, but otherwise it’s only us.
If you want to be sure to learn most about snowkiting, I recommend you to book a three-hour repetition course as well.
2600 KR BASIC COURSE
1300 KR REFRESHER COURSE 1 HOUR INCL KITE RENTAL

A course in snowkiting for you who want to learn how to kite together
During the basic course you will learn how to handle the kite in a safe way and we go through the equipment and safety. We will also have time to ride, and most people get to kite themselves during the course.
If you want to be sure to ride and become independent kiters, I recommend to book a three-hour progression course as well.
4300 KR 5 HOURS FOR 2 PERSONS
2100 KR 3 HOURS CONTINUATION COURSE FOR 2 PERSONS
A basic course for you who want a private lesson in snowkiting
The course is completely adapted to your needs and wishes where I teach you how to snowkite in an effective way.
As usual, I recommend a progresion course of 3 hours to be sure to really become an independent kiter.

A course for you who already can kite
If you already can kite on water or kited a few years ago but feel a little insecure, I recommend a shorter kite course of 2 hours where I go through special techniques and safety on snow and can give you some tips and hints.
If you want to continue after the intro, kite rental is included for the rest of the day!
PRICE 1400 KR PER PERSON
A kite-course for you who want to learn everything
My master’s course is for you who want to learn all about snowkiting. I usually divide the course into three days to give you enough rest between sessions. On the third day, we might try a little mountain hike if the conditions allow.
Effective teaching time is 15 hours and how we divide the hours is decided based on the conditions.
4800 KR 1 PERSON
7600 KR PRIVATE LESSON
7900 KR 2 PERSONS
OUR KITE COURSES
Our kite courses are always led by IKO-certified instructors. This means that we teach safety and techniques according to international standards and that you can easily move on to another school affiliated with IKO. More about IKO – opens in a new window
We use equipment from mainly Airush, and HQ and mostly tube kits so that you as a student can more easily walk from snow to water and because during the training there is less hassle with tube kits. With a little wind, we also have a kite school with foil kites, HQ Apex, which flies at 1 m / s.
ÅreKite provides all kite equipment during the training and is also responsible for any damage that occurs to the equipment during normal use. Should a student damage the equipment through negligence against the instructor’s instruction, the student may be liable for compensation.
Number of students
We apply IKO’s rules and only have one kite in the air per instructor. If you get so far during the course that you can train on your own, you can do it. Normally we have a maximum of two participants per instructor, but if you want to be more, it goes without saying, but the training will not be as effective. You can book an individual lesson at extra cost, otherwise we will try to book another participant for the course.
As a student, you must bring your own helmet and ski or snowboard equipment. We recommend beginners to have ski equipment, no matter how good you are at snowboarding. Also remember to dress extra warm with the option to take off your clothes if it gets too hot. ÅreKite is not responsible for your personal equipment.
Physical condition and illness
No special physical condition is required to snow kite, but sometimes we may need to pulse in the snow a few hundred meters to get us where we are going to kite. If you have any illness or injury, such as diabetes, that may affect you during the course, notify your instructor at the time of the course. We take your personal safety very seriously.
Coffee / snacks
Feel free to bring your own snack / coffee depending on the length of the course. We will contact you beforehand to agree on location and if there is a restaurant nearby. We always bring hot drinks out to the mountains.
