About the event
THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN SNOWKITE RIOT is a long-distance snow kiting competition, where kiters will cover 50 km, 2 gates, 3 laps. (Timing chip with Rebound Cycle??), in order to claim the ice throne. The weather window will be open for Saturday through Sunday and the race will run on the day with best and 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.
The top 3 fastest kiters in each category will get awarded with medals and the first place in each category will walk away with a brand new kite.
The race details are yet to be announced, but will involve racing on the windy Sylvan Lake. All kiters are welcome and divisions will include skis and snowboard, as well as men and women. Foil and inflatable kites are welcome. Length of the race is yet to be determined, and the course will be revealed a few days before the race. The race itself will be a regatta-style race with multiple laps. All kiters will only be allowed to switch kites at the departure gate set up area. No kites can be switched during the race. Switching touring skis to walk mode, or splitting your splitboard will disqualify a kiter.
