An awesome weekend away with great people aiming at transitioning your kite skills from the water safety across to the snow.
When is it?
Friday, August 31st (Night) to Sunday, September 2nd.
(please note Sunday is Fathers Day)
What is it?
KR CLUB’s Annual Snowkiting weekend at Mt Hotham. This is a weekend aimed at:
1. Transitioning your kiteboarding skills safely from water to snow!
2. Having an awesome time on the mountain and bonding with a tight knit small group of kiters with plenty in common!
Rough plan for weekend (obviously depending on conditions)?
If you can score Friday off work join us for a fun day of freeriding on the slopes. Leaving 5:00am.
For those that need to work, head down with the rest of the crew leaving at around 5:30pm. If Saturday is your only option, make it an early leave.
*NOTE – Price does not change if come up on Saturday.
