Geneva, Switzerland
4.15 /5
About this spot:
There are few snowkiting spots around Geneva. Our favourite is at La Thuile. Spot is great to practice flat surface snowkiting and also start going into mountains. There are few not so steep ones and also a school which is able to help and guide you! In summer there is a great surf spot to go - Alaia Bay, so we keep this destination open all year. There is also a kitesurf spot at Silvaplana which is quite distant (around 5h drive).
