EPIC ADVENTURE WEBINAR BY
Your snowkiting adventure starts now!
This webinar was presented on Tuesday, November 24th, with IPGA Master Guide Dixie Dansercoer in partnership with GearJunkie.
Snowkiting is an exhilarating sport that can be embraced by anyone. Whether you’re playing in your own backyard or being pulled across the frozen Arctic, nothing beats the rush of gliding across the snow being pulled by the power of the wind.
Nobody knows this better than Dixie Dansercoer, world-renowned polar explorer and expert snowkiter, who has travelled to furthest reaches of the planet, often pulled by his snowkite along the way. Dixie has written the definitive book on snowkiting, Snowkiting: Freedom of Flow, and we’re giving away a copy during the webinar.
An expert on the sport, and Dixie will share the ins and outs you need to know to get started. With the right gear, a little preparation and some tips from this snowkiting expert, you’ll be ready to start snowkiting in no time. Joined by his former client turned adventure partner and avid snowkiter, Matthieu Tordeur, you’ll hear his journey of how Dixie helped him progress from a beginner to snowkiting in Antarctica. For backcountry skiers looking to climb faster and further, to kiteboarders looking to practice throughout the winter, to outdoor adventurers just looking to have fun, this is the webinar for you.
Find out what it takes to get you started on your snowkiting journey and join us Tuesday, November 24th for this free webinar.
