Visit us on the Bernina Pass and learn to snowkite or experience a guided backcountry kite tour in a team.
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!
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!
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.
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!
If you are arriving by plane, we will be happy to help you from A to Z with your entry, onward travel by train, car rental (if desired). Your snowkiting holidays start before you arrive, we inform you, keep you informed and pick you up at the airport if necessary.
If you need ski/snowboard equipment, we will help you, advise you, organise the right equipment for snowkiting and all other possible sports you can do in and around the Engadine.
Our courses and tours are accompanied by radios and based on many years of local knowledge of weather, wind and snow.
We have installed a weather station so that you can keep up to date.
Once you start the request, you will be fully informed via email/Whatsapp or similar apps about the process, what you should bring and how much it will cost.
We offer something for everyone. For newcomers we recommend a 2-3 day course and for those who have already tried or come from the water there is a shortened "transition course":
