Weather
At this time of year we have beautiful and smooth flying conditions , often with some of fresh dry snow covering the pine trees and the town of Chamonix, temperatures are generally moderate , sometimes even quite warm.

Covid – 19.

Update: Saturday 14th March. All the ski lifts in France are now closed until further notice and consequently we cannot access our launch areas.  We are awaiting clarification as to whether we are allowed (or indeed if it is reasonable) for us to access flying sites by alternative means  and will update asap.

For the moment we cannot accept any reservations prior to 1st April.

 

Update: Thursday 12th March. At present we are still flying but this may change depending upon restrictions that may be placed upon us by the various national or local authorities.
The welfare of our passengers is our number one priority and whilst it is hard to see how paragliding can cause issues regarding Covid-19 we are taking simple precautions as recommended by the French health authorities: reducing physical contact by no hand shaking or embracing, maintaining a reasonable personal space , coughing into elbows rather than hands, using single use tissues and regular hand washing. We attempt to avoid being crowded in the the gondola when accessing take off. We welcome passengers using their own ski helmets for the flight and we can provide inner liners for those who do not have their own helmets. We also encourage that passengers wear their own gloves at all times.
We fully understand that the situation is evolving & travel plans will be liable to change and accept that passengers may cancel (without any charge from our side) at the last moment.
