On the snow, this new sensation is called Speed Riding - a blend of paragliding and skiing that lets you ride/fly the slopes at incredible speeds.
Adding the flight manouverability of a glider to the turn of your skis adds a whole new dimension to coming down the mountain. It's an exhilarating sport that will excite and fascinate both participants and spectators.
For years, pioneers have been using skydiving parachutes, modified kites or paragliders to descend from mountain tops. Now with the new speed riding technology of incredibly light materials, coupled with the knowledge of aerodynamic performance used in paragliding, descending is taking on a whole new meaning!
In Speed Flying and Speed Riding, everything happens VERY fast.
It makes sense to build a solid foundation of glider control skills in a slower, more forgiving aircraft before you move to the big time. Even a single day lesson will teach you valuable lessons about our incredible aircraft and you will experience the magic of flight for the first time.
