|What to Wear?
Wearing the right equipment can make or break any snowkiting session. One of the most beneficial steps you can take is layering. A base layer and outer shell is perfect for most days, and you can always add on a mid-layer for the really cold days. Remember with snowkiting there is no time wasted standing in line or riding the lifts so don't overdress and overheat. For gloves get something that is flexible enough to let you still firmly grip the bar and feel where the kite is at. If it is truly cold mitts will provide the most warmth by keeping your fingers close together and preserving body heat. You may lose some dexterity but it is better than having two frozen hands. Many riders like to wear a thin layering set of gloves under the mitts and attach their mitts to their jacket so they can quickly take them off for rigging the kite or adjusting a binding without having to worry about losing them. Lastly, be sure and get a warm snow specific helmet and a good pair of goggles. Unlike water kiting, the snow can hide lots of unknown obstacles especially when you are exploring new territory plus a helmet will provide way more warmth.
