White Kite News
From the feedback and the good vibes we received from last season’s event we are taking the energy and put it into another OzoneSnowkiteMasters in 2015. The atmosphere is pretty unique, so is the spot and the competition format, making this event something special you shouldn’t miss out on!
It’s all about coming together, meeting old and new faces and having a good time. For those who want to compete we are offering (all) different kinds of competitions for any level of kiting. From the rookie to the pro rider anyone is welcome to enter and there is a lot to learn, watch and ride!
A Race, Best Line and Speed Competition will be organized. The races will be combined with the Swiss Kitesailing Association Nationals on either Silvaplana Lake or up at the Berninapass.
Beside that, people interested in the amazing sport of snowkiting will have the opportunity to give it a go and learn on some trainer kites. Customers interested in any Ozone product can have a demo on the latest models, or if you just want to go and ride with like minded people and love a family environment you are very welcome as well.
Congratulation to the OSKM Race & Speed Winners!

A course race around marks. There will be natural obstacles as we will set the course off the flat parts (lakes). You not only have to be fast but also understand the terrain and set your lines through the hills. There will be rocks and obstacles that you want to avoid hitting. The fastest will win.
We introduced this kind of format for the very first time at the 2008 OSKM and it was well received by the riders and spectators. Again we will have 4 riders starting at the same time giving them 30min time to use their kite to climb a mountain and put down the best line with their kite packed and stowed in their rucksack.
Both disciplines will be live tracked by using the KiteTracker app and the ‘best line’ will be judged by the KiteTracker XC Competition formular together with a rider-judges-rider result.
During the time of the OSKM participants can go out and fight for the fastest speed using any GPS logging device. This can be done anytime from dusk Thursday 26th – Saturday 28th February dawn.
