Snow kiting is like kite-boarding, using the kite power to slide around on snowy terrains. It’s a high-energy sport and builds a lot of heat, so you should always wear enough layers to ensure you’re protected from the icy wind.

Ice Yachting

This is a great sport to try with friends. Ice yachts are with blades attached to the bottom, allowing them to slide across the ice at high speeds. Participants usually practice for races, and the sport is most popular in Canada, Sweden, Norway, the Gulf of Finland, and the US.

Snow Kayaking 

This trendy winter sport combines the excitement of snowboarding, kayaking, and speed riding. You use a 2-bladed paddle to help keep you upright, and, of course, helmets and eyewear are necessary to protect you from the ice and water spray.
