Snowkiters have been laying tracks all over the Rim and
Bondurant country of late. Outdoor adventurers strap on a pair of skis or a snowboard as well as a harness attached to the handlebar of the kite itself. Snowkiters can traverse uphill, downhill, crosshill – what a breathtaking new sport. The kites can also launch the rider into the air. It started in the mid-1980s, and is increasing in popularity.
