Been wanting to do this for a couple years now. I finally was able to go and all I have to say is WOW. I had an amazing time with Paul. After a going over some things on the ground. We only had to take a few steps and before I knew it....we were airborne. He then went over the... More

This was the BEST experience ever! My husband, 13yr old daughter and I all had great pilots. They were very experienced and made the flight amazing. Words cannot adequately explain how enjoyable and fun it was.

2 chicas from Nebraska flew with tandem instructors, Pine & AJ, for the last takeoff of the day .. 10am. The whole crew involved was helpful, calming, and just excited for the adventure we were about to embark on. Couldn't have felt safer w/ these fellas; the temperature and wind was perfect; the views were indescribable. As newb paragliders, we're... More

I flew on my 21st birthday and it was a great present! I was nervous about flying but the guides clearly knew what they were doing and I felt safe the whole time. The flights are tandem, which means you fly with an instructor harnessed right behind you (but not in an uncomfortably close way). Each flight lasts 20-30 minutes... More

We scheduled a paragliding experience for our 16 year old son for 10:00 on a Friday. The company called us the day before and asked to move the event to 9:00 if that would work for us since they had been having better rides at the 9 vs 10 am rides. We agreed to be there for the 9:00 ride.... More

If you are already thinking paragliding don't look any further if in the Glenwood Springs area! I did this as a special treat for my 30th birthday and can hardly wait for a repeat already!

There was some confusion with our booking but owner went above and beyond to make this an amazing experience. The instructors couldn't have been better. The picture package is well worth the money. We had no weather issues and had an incredible time!!!!

What an awesome experience! Originally I had a 9 am appointment but since the weather wasn't looking good they were able to accommodate me at 10 am. I had a picture package included, which I definitely recommend getting for yourself unless someone is coming to the top of the mountain with you to take pictures. Keep in mind they take... More

Bottom Line --- Fun experience with a great bunch of totally professional pilots even for someone from Iowa with a fear of heights like me. Don’t hesitate – go for it but don’t expect everything to go on schedule since you are definitely at the mercy of the wind & weather. Hang loose and you’ll have a blast – short... More

It was overcast the day our trip was booked. The flight team told us that since it was overcast the flight might be shorter due to less updrafts. I guess that when it is warm, the heat from the ground creates updrafts that help extend the flight times. When it is overcast the flight team explained that the heat is... More
