Each student will get a morning tandem-paragliding flight (a $145 value) and one copy of Red Bull X-Alps 2005, a documentary about one of the most difficult adventure races (a $30 value). Gliders strap into their own harness attached to the same paraglider as their instructor, who pilots the flight. Once in the air, the instructor explains how to control the paraglider and hands over the controls if the passenger is interested.
Flights usually last around 30 minutes and take place at Point of the Mountain’s south side. Prospective paragliders meet at the top the mountain and can identify the Cloud 9 spot by a large pile of gear. Paragliders should wear long pants and ankle supporting shoes or boots, and bring something to drink and a camera.<p>
