Fun sports

Snowkiting, snowcarting and snowtubing - there are lots of sports for adrenaline junkies in Tyrol, just come and try.

Besides the classical sports such as skiing and cross-country skiing in a breathtaking landscape, there are also some trend and fun sports in winter: One of them is snowkiting, a great method to use the power of wind and the snow. It is performed with a Kite that acts as an airfoil, which creates lifts. Moreover it is quite easy to learn - snowkiting is based on kitesurfing.

Also popular is snowcarting, that's to say sliding down the slope in a spectacular, but controlled manner. A snow cart, the vehicle used to exert this sport, is similar to a go-cart and as easy to drive. The cart is equipped with two footbrakes and an ice brake, so that you race down the slope safely. Or maybe you would like to try snowtubing? Snowtubing can be compared to sledding, only the vehicle on which it is performed is different. Due to the low amount of friction between the tubes and snow, snowtubers can reach considerable speeds up to 40 kmph. There are snowtubing tracks with jumps and curves which keep the inflatable ring in track, and special tracks for children.
