Kite Snow Boarding/Skiing

I like to fly a kite now and then, and I've seen people on boards in large bodies of water who use a kite to pull them around. So I shouldn't be all that surprised that kite snowboarding/skiing is starting to become popular.

I do remember reading in the book by Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen called No Horizon Is So Far that they used kites to pull them along at times. Sometimes it worked and other wasn't pretty. Above is a picture when it was working.

But with good conditions (no crevasses or strong gusts of wind to knock you around) this might be actually kinda fun. What do you think?
