The 2008 Superfly Snowkiting Competition is testimony to Powder's commitment to becoming Utah's primo destination for snowkiting, an aggressive sport where guys (and gals) harness a paragliding wing to their bodies and launch.
The Superfly Open is a perfect opportunity for those intrigued by the sport to enjoy introductory kite clinics and watch some of the best snow kiters in the world. Three categories of competition will be on display: Freestyle, Kitecross, and Big Air. There also will be timed challenges, a showing of the new movie Something Stronger, live music, dancing, a "Best Girls" contest, dining, awards, and multi-media presentations from some of the greatest athletes in the sport.
All the action takes place just south of the top of the Sunrise Poma lift, in an area known as "The Towers" in the Hidden Lake area of Powder Mountain. The viewing area is wide and open, so cruise over and take a break from skiing or riding to watch all the action. Powder is the only ski area in Utah that offers a specific day pass for snow kiters, which provides access to the Sunrise Poma lift that accesses ideal terrain and winds for kiting.
