Is the ice safe…?

Before any adventure out on the ice for the first time, its important to check the depth and strength of the ice. 10cm of “steel ice” is plenty strong. This type of ice can in fact carry 400kg!

When we head out on the ice for the first time we drill a hole with a dedicated ice drill (same as the ones one use for ice fishing) When we get trough the ice, we measure the hole with the help of using a measuring tape. We drill a couple of holes to check the ice on different places around just to be sure we have ourself covered.

When doing this, we need to secure ourselves in case we are to fall trough the ice. We use ise pikes that we have hanging around our neck for easy access.

In the video you see that I point at 10 inches and not 10 cm. This is because I accidentally pointed at the wrong spot on the measuring tape while I was filming. But the the correct thickness of the ice was in fact 10cm

Winter is knocking at our doors here in Namsskogan, Trøndelag. As I am typing the snow is falling gently outside our living room window as the fire crackling away in the wood stove. We simply LOVE winter!

On the 6th Desember our first snowkiting classes will be held here at the foothills of Børgefjell National Park, and we are super excited! We have only 2 spot left 😀 If you wanna join, then get in touch NOW. I don’t think that we have got so many eager kiters booked this quickly before 🙂 Over the last three years we have worked really hard to promote this aria for kiters and finally, it seams like now finally, this place is getting the recognition it really deserves. In fact this place is actually Trøndelags BEST Kite spot with snow and wind guarantee!

With our eager instructors, you are sure to learn this sport in no time! (We recommend that you know how to ski before start snowkiting) It’s the fastes growing sport and we understand why.
