Snowkiting is about using the wind energy to reach the summits, as a natural skilift. The way to ski down untracked couloirs and ride along wild crests offers an unbeatable sunset point of view then wake up in a remote refuge at the border from French to Italian southern alps (this one was built by an Italian father in memory of his son Mateo) is one of the best ways to enjoy mountain nature as a free rider.

Follow riders Alex Robin, Nils Heurtebise and Sylvian Raievsky along with filler Yann Freund (FPVision) on an incredible snowkite adventure to a refuge at the top of Dormillouse. Lean back, watch and discover what the french FLYSURFER team was up to this winter.
