Sylvan Lake, AB
HOW FAST CAN YOU TRAVEL ACROSS A SNOW-COVERED LAKE USING WIND AS YOUR POWER SOURCE?
It's time to harness in, fly your kite and experience the best of Canadian Rockies in our first annual ROCKY MOUNTAIN SNOWKITE RIOT!
Our back yard is something to celebrate - with the wonderful combination of picturesque mountains, ample snow and steady wind - we have the perfect environment to host an unforgettable snowkite race. Get ready, as all kiters alike race across the windy Sylvan Lake to claim the ice throne!
Snow kiting has grabbed hearts across the world, a sport that has revolutionized how and where we ski and snowboard. We want to bring the global community together, snow kiters of all levels and experience, and showcase the appeal and power of this sport in Alberta.
THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN SNOWKITE RIOT is a long distance competition, where kiters will cover a large span of Sylvan Lake and will include several laps. (The distance is yet to be determined but will be announced as soon as more details are available).
The weather window will be open for Saturday through Sunday and the race will run on the day with the most favourable wind conditions. Foil and inflatable kites, skis and snowboards are all welcome, but in the interest of keeping this event fun and inclusive, we will have two winning categories only: women and men.
PLAN YOUR RACE
Registration will close one hour before the race. The fee includes your bib, which will be assigned on race day. Make sure to arrive 1 hour before the scheduled race time to set up your kites and to sign in for race day.
Race Day is March 5, 2022.
We have a number of sponsors waiting to support you at the finish line! Amazing draw prizes, including a kite and SUP board.
