The absolute legend that is Stu took me up and it's got to go down as one of my most fun experiences. The guys are absolutely lovely. It takes only a couple of minutes to get geared up and you are running down the mountain and up in the sky before you know it! I thought I was afraid of heights. I'm clearly just afraid of falling and at no time did I feel un-safe with these guys. I even did it a second time and we did some more dips and spirals! It's an absolute must try experience for me. I couldn't stop smiling... Just do it!!

Through word of mouth, I heard about this paragliding school and I was not disappointed. Mike and Stu run a very professional operation and all their instructors are top-notch. I signed up for the elementary pilot 5-day course which consisted of 2 days of ground handling and theory followed by 3 days of solo flying. For all your flights the instructors are in constant radio contact with you and help to make the intro to a pretty gnarly and scary sport considerably more relaxing. If you would like to learn how to paraglide or even go for a tandem jump, I couldn't recommend these guys highly enough. Thank you for introducing me to the unique, and quite frankly, awe-inspiring experience of solo paragliding.

Called with Verbier Summits two days ago and got some good advice around the upcoming weather and decided to fly this morning. One of the best experiences ever had, really relaxing flight with real professionals. They know what they are doing and know the region you are flying over, with beautiful views and scenery.
Cannot say different then to try these guys if you are around.

Sadly, I had a lousy experience with Verbier Summits. Booked everything for my wife and me, we paid 100% in advance a CP plus with accommodation, which we dreamed about since the pandemic.
A month before the courses, I had an accident skiing in Patagonia and I wanted to reschedule this due to the accident and they answered me very harshly that they had costs, (a month before and because of an accident) and that not only they did not return me a Euro, but they did NOT leave me NOT ONE EURO of credit for some other time!!!
The idea was to go two weeks, GOD wanted not to pay him in advance the two weeks!!!!, because if it had been so, they would keep 7000 Euros that were not theirs.
What hurts me the most is that in this way they canceled the possibility of flying (with them) in Verbier , a real hurt.
Just so you know,

Absolutely amazing experience, would recommend to anyone, tourists and people who are there for the season alike. Flew with Stu and it was a flawless experience. Great conversation, all while making sure I was at ease. Contrary to what I initially thought, it's extremely peaceful and smooth.
Truly incredible, thank you so much.

I have just returned from the five day elementary pilot course. The Verbier Summits team are excellent. They set an upbeat and friendly tone, which created a great atmosphere for a holiday, but they are also entirely professional and serious when it comes to safety and imparting knowledge and developing your skills. I learned a lot, thanks to their vast experience, encouragement and, especially, patience. I would certainly recommend them, and am already planning my next course.

Huge thank you to the incredible team at Verbier Summits – if you've ever wanted to fly, these guys are the absolute best instructors out there! My partner and I went from zero experience to flying solo in three days, and felt 100% looked after the entire time.

All the instructors were extremely knowledgeable, attentive and, frankly, really good fun. As for the setting, I don't think you could ask for a more stunning place to take to the skies :)

In short: we had a brilliant time and hope to return next year to complete the full CP course!! Just... don't tell my mum 😆

First thing first Mike is hands down one of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. This man is a legend and absolute pro at what he does. This was my first time paragliding and I couldn’t be happier to have mike with me. I’ve never experienced anything like this before. From the scenery while flying and the pure professionalism from Mike this was a 10/10. I had such a fun time gliding through the air with Mike I booked another flight once we landed. I couldn’t think of a better spot to paraglide than here. If you’re on the fence or even slightly afraid just pull the trigger. This is something you’ll never forget, plus you’re in the best/safest hands around. Mike is a pro so you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Do yourself the favor and book with him today. You won’t regret it. One of the best experiences in my life. Your a legend mike!

Funnily enough, I have a fear of heights and flying so how it is that I found myself on a course to learn paragliding is somewhat beyond me but I don't regret it one bit. I hadn't even done a tandem flight before (I still haven't).
Mike and Stu have designed a fantastic system for teaching even the most nervous flyers how to get down safely, and they, along with the rest of the team (Andres, Guy and Pavel) are incredibly knowledgeable and reassuring.
I did the two weeks 'Beginner to Club Pilot' course and loved every second of it, from the great team, the flying and the absolutely breathtaking scenery. I wouldn't have changed a thing. They've planted the paragliding bug in me and I will be forever grateful.
If you're on the fence about it, just do it. You couldn't be in safer, friendlier, and more reassuring hands.
