Let’s Go Fly a Kite

This winter, about the only to survive was to make the most of the multiple opportunities for winter sports. But at a certain point, even the most avid skier or snowboarder probably started looking for a little novelty. That’s where this idea for the next big thing comes in.

Snowkiting combines a big kite with your skis or snowboard for a new kind of experience on the snow — one that can move you at speeds up to 60 MPH. Invented in Europe in the ’70s, the sport has really caught on in Minnesota where they’re having the worst winter in 30s years…but it’s not so bad if snowkiting is your bag.

Are you ready to chase the chill with a snowkite on ice? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think!

    If it took 40 years to get the trend to Minnesota, then how long will it take for it to become The Big Thing?

    It would be super cool! Snowkiting would help kids stay active during the winter instead of staying inside watching TV!

    I think the next big thing is really amazing and the fact when it’s -10 degrees and you can fly a kite I think it’s awesome :) it totally the next big thing.

    Ok so I like it. It will intertain the kids while I can get my piece and quiet. They could have a blast outside!

    yes it should be the next big thing because if it snows a lot kids will have fun outside and encourage the kids to go outside.

    This would be so cool! Flying a kite is basically like kite surfing and since I can’t go in the water because its FREEZING I can surf on snow!

    I may be moving to Minnesota, And this is one of the first things that makes me want to go there! This is a thing everyone would get off the couch for!
