Where to Kite Ski
The Skyline Drive snowkiting area in Utah's Manti-La Sal National Forest is a premiere kite skiing location, with crosswind attacks ranging from 5 to 20 mph at a breathtaking 10,000 feet.
From the Sanpete Valley, you can access the main Skyline Drive snowkiting area at Fairview Canyon on Highway 31 at mile marker 14. Parking and restrooms are located at the launch site. Snowplows keep Highway 31 cleared throughout the winter. From Salt Lake City, head south on I-15 and take Exit 261 at Spanish Fork and continue south on Highway 89 until you reach the town of Fairview. If you’re traveling from the south, take I-70 Exit 56 at Salina and head north on Highway 89 to Fairview. Four-wheel drive and a snowmobile may be required for different access points.
