Feature Story Idea

Gliding Across the Prairies

One thing is always guaranteed during Saskatchewan’s notorious winters: lots of sun, snow and in the south, wind. All of these elements combined make the perfect setting for a thrilling new winter sport gaining in popularity: kiteboarding, a blend of windsurfing and snowboarding/skiing, in which participants use a kite combined with wind power to glide on snow and ice.

It’s an exciting year for Saskatchewan as the first-ever North American endurance snow kite event, Red Bull Kite Farm, will take place just minutes north of Regina. North American kiteboarders will be competing against Saskatchewan’s own talent in a 50 kilometre endurance race. The winners from both the ski and snowboard divisions will win an all-expense paid trip to Norway to represent North America at Red Bull Ragnarok in April 2015.
