US Open Snowkite Masters at Skyline, Utah – March 1st &2nd, 2008
In its 4th winter, the US Snowkite Masters has grown to become a world wide series of events, hosting national titles in several different countries. This year the SKM has already hit France and Germany, with upcoming dates in Switzerland and the USA. Each location provides unique terrain and challenges for Snowkiters and invites riders of all abilities to rally together for a weekend of freeriding, racing and freestyle exhibition. Held at Skyline in Utah, the American leg of the Snowkite Masters presents the U.S. Open national championship, and has become one of the largest Snowkite events in the country.
The philosophy of the SKM is to share the positive vibe of Snowkiting while enjoying mountain conditions with friends. The Freeride format allows riders to do what we love most, RIDE. Go on tour down the ridge, follow friends up steep slopes, push your freestyle to the next level, or just chill and grill at Basecamp while tunes flow through the air. For those that like the thrill of competition and want to go head to head with other riders in a battle of speed and tactics, there are the U.S. Open races featuring Kiter-Cross & Winduro courses. The SKM is the perfect time for Snowkiters, media and newcomers to come together on the same field and share this amazing sport in a world class setting.
We would like to THANK all who make these events possible, including this years supporters: Dakine, Ozone Rossignol, Zeal Optics, Ska Brewing, Magellan GPS, Yamaha & Kite Utah Guides.
