Just as the busy holiday season takes off here at Sugar Bowl, so too does a new operation over at Royal Gorge Cross Country…the Sierra Snowkite Center. The expansive Van Norden Meadow between Sugar Bowl Resort and Royal Gorge- America’s largest XC resort – is now the new home of California’s first Snowkite School, with renowned kiting champ Tyler Brown at the reigns. Ready to teach his passion to snowsports enthusiasts, Tyler will tout the virtues of harnessing the wind and blasting through powder as quite the compelling combo, and as an operator Tyler is banking on strong interest. Offering everything from simple intro-to-kiting overviews to immersive kiting curriculums, snow kiting is sure to attract participants. And with the largest water-based kiting community in the world just down the road in San Francisco, Sierra Snowkite Center’s water-to-snow transition courses should prove to be quite popular, too. Sugar Bowl Resort and Royal Gorge XC are thrilled to have the Sierra Snowkite Center as our newest neighbor in the meadow…check out what the local paper had to say here http://www.sierrasun.com/article/20121227/NEWS/121229922/1066&ParentProfile=1051\ and the we’ll see you out – or rather up – there.
