Snow Kite Boarding on Mt Hood - More Extreme Sports
Posted by Mt Hood Vacation Rentals | Saturday, March 22, 2008

We keep finding examples of extreme sport enthusiasts doing their thing on Mt Hood. The latest blog we found is of someone named Aaron who Snowkite Snowboarded on Mt Hood for 3 hours on March 16, 2008. The rider (or skier) hangs on to a large kite or small parachute with what looks like a Windsurfer harness and a tow rope for water skis and lets the wind as it catches the kite move him around on the snow. Beware, if you are not a very accomplished skier or snowboarded, you can fall while Snowkiting, in which case your face could end up looking like a road pizza.

Aaron used a split snowboard, his photographer was on "AT" skis (Randonee, I guess). Take a look at Aaron's blog for some cool photos.
If Snowkite Boarding sounds like fun to you, take a look at The International Snowkiting Association website.
