Tow-up - snowkite style

The power of a snowkite is pretty incredible. Check out this footage, opening up new playgrounds for freestyle riders

Johan Civel has long been at the forefront of freeride snowkite progression. He and his Ride Up team have conquered many a previously unreachable peak in the Alps. Using their kites to pull themselves up, they then enjoy untouched powder routes back down. Now, Johan takes his friends with him. Check this footage out of him towing up his friend Fackie Brown who can then shred an area that would otherwise be impossible for him (without A LOT of walking!).


Here's what Johann says:

Since long time ago we were thinking about tow in a freestyler to avoid him hard step in the snow.
Thanks about the Serre Chevalier Snowkite master organisation  and the urba trash kicker we manage this at the Lautaret pass last week .

And because of the long flat befor the jump, the snowkiter was also usefull for giving more speed for david Brun (the freestyler) to reack the jump with speed enough.

The harder in that plan was to jump together without landing on each other !!
