European snow kite recommendations

Postby leb304 » Sun Nov 03, 2019 11:53 am

Hi people,

Looking for a bit of an adventure, 4 confident and experienced kite surfers, 3 or 4 kite skiing/snow kiting trips under our belts in Norway and turkey, plus messing about on Uk hills on the rare snow day...

Anyone point us in the right direction for some fun snow kiting/ random adventures and in short hop from the uk? Happy to ski tour or use lifts if not windy...

Would be late season around Easter most likely... failing that February...

T.I.A

Luke

Hi,
I would recommend my home spot Vitosha. It is the mountain next to Sofia the capital of Bulgaria. You can sleep in Sofia and you would be 30-40 min drive + 15-40 min hike to the spot (depending on conditions). There is also a Gondola next to the outer ring road of the city. Or you could stay in one of the hotels in the mountain and save yourself the ride but staying in the city gives you access to the nightlife the capital has to offer.
Vitosha has a big plateau that you could shred all over. There are also a few chairlifts if the conditions are not good. You could also travel to Borovets which an hour away where you can find much more pistes (not suitable for kiting there).
A big advantage of Sofia is that it is cheap compared to other destinations in Europe.

You can have a look in the facebook group dedicated to snowkiting on Vitosha. There are a lot of videos and photos there. https://www.facebook.com/groups/164480680267397/
Also if you need any help on how to get to the spot or what is the forecast or current conditions, I am sure a lot of the members in the group would be glad to help.
