Snow Kiting in Venosta Valley in South Tyrol
Adventure sports on Resia Lake in the Venosta Valley
Snow kiters looking for the ultimate in gliding freedom will find it at Resia Lake, along with the smaller Haidersee Lake, as well as around Malga S. Valentino/Haideralm ski area and Belpiano/Schöneben ski area at the three-country border to Austria and Switzerland. These are among the most popular spots for the international snow kiting scene.
On the 6 km-long and almost 1 km-wide Resia Lake snow kiters can reach top speeds as the famous Venosta Valley wind helps to drive the towing kite. Due to its altitude and size, the lake freezes completely during the winter and can therefore be used safely. In this sense, Resia Lake is an absolute exception in the Southern Alps.
Haidersee Lake is also perfectly suitable for ambitious snow kiters looking for action and new challenges. Here you can allow yourself to be taken by the wind over snow-covered areas.
