For $49, you get an introductory paragliding lesson from Cloud 9 Paragliding School (a $95 value).

Paragliding combines the mellower aspects of skydiving and hanggliding, suspending you from a half-moon parachute for long, smooth sessions of sky-surfing. Learning transpires at Cloud 9's Point of the Mountain north- or south-side spot in the morning on the day you set up your lesson. Before you ascend into the clouds, you'll first cover basic ground-school curriculum, including launching and landing as well as fundamental flight rules. After that, you'll have ample opportunity to try low-altitude practice flights off the training hill. Cloud 9 recommends bringing plenty of water and food, wearing long pants, and sporting ankle-supporting boots or shoes. Gloves and extra layers are nice to have on cooler days. While you won't be certified to fly after this lesson, you can apply what you paid toward the total cost of a certification course.

An appointment is required.

Customer Reviews

Three of my teenage kid went for a beginning lesson and all three had great time and loved the guys bat Cloud 9. I have a feeling that more lessons will follow.

A very well run company. All the instructors had great teaching techniques and patience that made everything very easy to pick up on. I will be going back 100% for sure. I can't wait to try the snowboarding/paragliding!
