Snowkite Camp Norway
Haukeli, Norway is one of the best destinations for snowkiting in the world. The lake Ståvann takes place right outside of Haukeliseter mountain resort, and offers loads of snow, good wind and plenty of space for snowkiting. It takes five hours by car to get to Haukeliseter from Oslo (285 km).
About the course
We will teach you everything you need to become a safe and independent kiter. You will learn about equipment, safety, wind conditions and kiting – first the theory, followed by exercises with the kite in the snow. Our kite courses are designed for kiters on all levels. Beginners, intermediates and advanced kiters will experience progression after a weekend with Lapoint in the mountains. We are using the newest gear on the market from Cabrinha. Marit Nore is in charge of the kite courses. She has been teaching snowkiting six seasons at Haukeliseter, and she knows loads about the wind conditions and the surrounding spots.
The area that surrounds Haukeliseter offers loads of snow, hills, kickers, cliffs to jump off and much more to be discovered with a kite. The lake has safe and easy learning conditions for beginners. The more experienced riders train their tricks on the flat area and they go on daytrips up mountain hills. Instead of using a lift to the top, snowkiters can use the wind to power them up a mountain and dig in to untouched fresh powder. It is possible to continue snowkiting in the night under the stars. A flashlight lights up the area outside the hotel.
