I met David in the Extreme Glisses ski rental shop in Samoen when we arrived to collect our skis. I collected the leaflet for this company and forgot about it for a day or two as we were ski ing. With a tiny bit of trepidation I asked the two families if they wanted to have a go. They all agreed and I phoned the number. Within an hour David answered the query and took details to ascertain availability. We continued to communicate via mobile and sorted all severn of our party ( 4 adults, 3 teenage children) with slots on the Saturday having rung on the Thursday. We arrived and were met with three very professional, friendly instructors. All were very calm, safe and ensured each of us understood what was happening and required. All of us were absolutely blown away but the experience which we believe was great value (€80 each 20-25 mins)Some instructors had go-pros which they would use for an extra €20.... again in our opinion, well worth it. Couple of things to note. Boarders will need to run without boards for take off. No poles for skiers so we left everything together at the top. If you are looking for a fantastic exhilarating experience...don’t hesitate......brilliant....made all our week. Big thanks to David and the team.........do it!

My girlfriend and I who both live in Samoens parapented with 2 other friends and had a fantastic flight! The team are very friendly, professional and really know what their doing. The views were amazing and the flight was very comfortable. Definitely the best parapenting providers in Samoens and probably the whole of France!

Incredible flight with the instructor David, very skilled, felt totally safe even before flying, answers all your questions and describes what's happening while in the air. What a sight! We even did a 360, now that is quite à feeling! Totally recommend them.

It took me 10 years to pluck up the courage to do this. It was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. To see the Criou and Samoens was just incredible. David was so calm and professional that I instantly relaxed and didn't feel anxious for one moment. Thank you so much - I so want to do it again.

Apparently mornings are less turbulent than afternoons but my (morning) 1st ever flight was as smooth as I could have imagined with these guys. Stephane was v reassuring & the take off was easy. It felt a lot longer than 20 minutes flying & the views were simply breath taking. Totally recommend it, but be prepared to be bumped if the weather doesn't play ball.
