Our Leader and the founder of Bigdayz is still very active in Snowkiting, his experience leads back to the beginnings of the Sport and not many have infected and influenced so many "new born kite-buddys" like Marco Köppel. He will lead some of the Backcountry-Tours and you will find him here and there flying around. Most of the Beginner/Transition Courses will be lead by Rico Poletti, a Snowkite-Enthusiast since more than 15 years...
