Winter is upon us but the weather is a little too clear & sunny causing a lot of the snow to have melted from the lower slopes: good news for paragliding ! There is skiing for experienced skiers at les Grands Montets, less accomplished skiers can benefit from limited skiing at la Flegere, les Planards, le Brevent or les Houches. The snow conditions in neighbouring Courmayeur (a 25 min drive away) are currently excellent.

Probably THE most dramatic lift served flight in the whole of the French Alps and often cited by enthusiastic solo pilots as one of the most dramatic flights in the world! A miniature expedition using crampons & with a mountain guide to access the launch area followed by a smooth aerial journey amidst the snow & ice adorned high alpine peaks and glaciers of the Mont Blanc massif.
Not for the faint hearted !
In the autumn, due to the exposed access, this flight is only accessible to sporty people or those who have already paraglided or have some climbing / crampon experience !
Due to the high altitude we need good fortune with the weather and it is best to have several days allowing for postponement.
