All-round carefree package with BIGDAYZ

Snowkiting with the local "kop" and family

The name Bigdayz comes from snowkiting, back in the year "zero" (2000) when KOP was out in the snow for the first winter! Snowkiting is less "dangerous", easier to learn and has many more facets than kitesurfing will ever have. No winter went by without "KOP" on the Bernina Pass, first as an enthusiast then as a kite instructor and motivator for his students. After more than 20 years, he has now also created some infrastructure for the Bernina Pass. A small container station with seats, solar panels that power a measuring station and a webcam, a toilet and some information on how the spot can/should be used. There are daily courses and now you can also simply rent a kite!

Snowkite season

In the Engadine, snow falls in November and sometimes the conditions last until the end of April. There is no place in Europe where sun, wind and snow interact as perfectly as on the Bernina Pass!

Kite sizes

We fly everything from 4-13 square metres. Training takes place with Flysurfer Peak4 & 5 (ideal and safe) and we also have tubes and ozone mats for advanced learners.

Kite experience

Everyone is welcome at BIGDAYZ in the Engadine, from beginners to professionals, children or retired people . Thanks to the Homebase, spectators also have some space!
