Move on the snow with the thrust of the wind and then fly suspended in mid-air on a kite. This is what happens when you combine kite surfing with snowboarding. In Valtellina you can find many places to practice this recently-born sport. In Valchiavenna - at Montespluga (near Madesimo) - there are gentle slopes and open spaces, an ice-covered lake and, of course, plenty of wind. Another good place for this sport is the Lago Bianco (2300 masl) just below the Bernina Pass. The best resorts for experts are the Bergamasque Alps, such as the Cima Lemma, which can be reached through the Val Lunga from the village of Tartano. If you are a skier or a snowboarder, but you have never tried flying on a snow kite, just ask an instructor in Valtellina. Get into the adventure: it's really #wonderful!
