We're located in one of the best spot in the world: Col du Lautaret in the Alps. At 2058 meters above sea level we benefit from very good snow conditions beginning in November through to May. And all this is easily accessible thanks to a good road, provided your car is equipped for winter conditions. We are very close to Briançon so it's easy to access by train. Serre Chevalier is 15 minutes away and it is one of the biggest ski resorts in France and Europe. Serre Chevalier covers 250 kilometres of pistes, at altitudes of between 1200 and 2800 metres, for everyone from beginners to expert skiers! But why to use the lift when you can climb the moutain with a kite and the wind...
Due to the fact that the Lautaret pass is an extraordinary place from a demographic and climatic point of view, we enjoy frequent and steady winds as well as plenty of open space.

Why to learn how to snowkite?
You can go down and up the mountain! So you don't need any lift or ski station. It's just the mountain, your friends and you! Your ride all the times, no waiting line for the lift anymore 😉
Is it easier than kitesurfing?
Sensations are very similar to kitesurfing - but it's a lot easier to learn because you don't need strong wind for snowkiting. You don't need to float! That is why it is a good way for beginners to start learning how to kite. The steering of the kite first takes place on foot on snow. Then on skis you will naturally start sliding, the fact that you are upright on snow makes it quite easy. You will already be standing up straight, no need to haul yourself out of the water.
Snowboard or Ski?
You can use both but it is generally easier to get started on skis. Snowboard will be a little bit more challenging but still a lot of fun!
