Entry Level Snow Kites
Snowkiting- Kite or Wing Both are a Blast and Easy to Learn
3 Line Trainer / Beginner kites
Trainer kites are most likely going to be too small for the average Adult. The larger sizes like the HQ Rush 350 Hydra 350 may work for lighter riders. An exception to this would be if you are on a hard pack surface with stronger winds.
Other options in this category of kites with stronger pull would be the hq Hydra 420 (4.5m), and Peter Lynn Skim 4m. These 4m+ kites are the largest sizes. They are a good kites for those who may not be fully dedicated to entering the sport and would like a simple way to explore snowkiting with out a large investment ($250-$500)
4- Line Depower Kites Are The Best
Below are 3 kites we would recommend. These kites are user friendly and they have great depower, and are very stable kites for people who are new to the sport. These kites typically have more low end power and are more forgiving than performance oriented snow kites. Most people who are looking for a great kite to go cruise through the snow and catch some air from time to time will never out grow these Do-All kites. They are a great investment for your quiver.
On a firm snow or hard packed snow surface with light powder, a 4m to 6m kite is a great size for lighter kiters and 5m to 8m kites are good sizes for heavier riders that are new to the sport.
4 Line De-power kites (Full size gear) will range from $1,500 to $3,000 for a new kite package. This would include; The Kite, control bar with lines, leash, and harness. Each item is sold separately but together make up a complete package that is required to fly a full size 4-line depower kite.
2 Kites to look at;
HQ Apex. 5m / 8m (Open Cell Foil Kite)
Eleveight RS or OS models 6m / 8m (LEI)
Eleveight Wing WSF V3 4m / 5m / 6m
Inflatable Kites - Great for Both Kiteboarding and Snowkiting
Inflatable kites can also be excellent snow-kites. The Eleveight Rs or OS are both great kites for learning. If you are considering learning both kiteboarding and snow-kiting an inflatable kite is a great choice.
With Inflatable kites the same kite can be used for both sports; this allows you to build a quiver that will maximize your wind range for both kiteboarding and snowkiting. The only difference in gear is the board you ride on.
Inflateble kites will range from $1,500 on up for the kite. The control bar is often sold separate $500 on up. Then there is the harness ranging from $2o0 to $350 (for either a seat harness or waist harness). Total investment $2,500 and up for new gear.
