The new Nordic snow sportPallastunturi, Finland

What do you get when you combine skis with kitesurfing get-up? One hell of an extreme snow sport that’s not for the faint-hearted. Snowkiting is a Nordic craze popular with surf junkies and serious snow bunnies who mix disciplines for awesome airborne adventures. Get yourself to Finland, grab a pair of skis or a snowboard, strap yourself into your kite harness and let the wind take you where it will. Okay, so there’s a little technique involved, particularly if you don’t want to find yourself hurtling towards the North Pole.


Beginners can learn from the pros with Finkite, who will sweep you off your feet for about US$55 a day.

It will take you a few hours to get the hang of it and a whole lot longer to perfect your technique.
