From that moment the power of the wind became a friend, helping us to reach beautiful areas in the mountain.

Since long time ago we were thinking about tow in a freestyler to avoid him hard step in the snow.
Thanks about the Serre Chevalier Snowkite master organisation and the urba trash kicker we manage this at the Lautaret pass last week .
And because of the long flat befor the jump, the snowkiter was also usefull for giving more speed for david Brun (the freestyler) to reack the jump with speed enough.
The harder in that plan was to jump together without landing on each other !!
