Paragliding in winter in the Alpes vaudoises

Winter is the perfect time for a different kind of paragliding experience: with your skis on, let yourself glide and fly over the snow-covered landscapes of the Vaud Alps.

Do you want to take to the skies, touch the clouds with your fingertips and fly over the snow-covered Alpes vaudoises and admire Western Switzerland from the sky ? Skis on, try the adventure of paragliding in winter and soar thanks to this change of perspective.

Tandem paragliding offers a multitude of sensations. Your pilot knows how to put you in confidence to experience moments at one with nature. These memories will remain with you for the rest of your life.

In winter, you can take off in a tandem flight from the ski slopes. You slide down the slope then you leave the ground, the paraglider wing rises, the ground moves away little by little and finally, you fly!

If the winter season offers less favourable flight conditions than in summer, the beauty of the snowy landscapes above which you glide is exhilarating. What a feeling to see the world from a higher point of view, to soar above the ski slopes and snow-capped summits.

If you have your pilot's licence, several take-off areas spread across the Vaud Alps offer great flights. Currents could take you over valleys and peaks of the whole of Western Switzerland. 

The most legendary take-offs are from Glacier 3000, the summit of La Berneuse and Grand Chamossaire or from the Dorchaux ridge.
