What do you get when you combine the mountain sports of skiing and snow boarding on frozen lake and an extreme sport usually reserved for the ocean, like kite boarding? You get snowkiting!! Snow kiting adventurers can use kites to travel great distances and sports enthusiasts push the boundaries of freestyle, big air, speed and back country exploration by harnessing the unpredictable mountain drafts. Our first Rocky Mountain Experience finds Rick and Brian in very unfamiliar territory. While Rick is an avid skier and Brian was once a World ranked snowboarder, neither has ever tried to do double duty while harnessed to and steering a kite. Not only are they novices but they must train to compete in front of rowdy spectators at the Dillon Snow Kite Open on Dillon Reservoir in Summit County Colorado.
