$129 for a Tandem Hang-Gliding Flight (Up to $300 Value)

During 15- to 25-minute flights, fliers and instructors launch off Slide Mountain, soaring across mountains while an expert hang glider controls the craft. Those who wish to fly can take over the controls after a brief lesson.

Thermal Sky Sports

Currently ranked as the 14th best hang glider in the United States, 23 year-old Alex Cuddy flies, competes, and teaches around the globe. But each summer, Cuddy returns to the familiar air of the Sierra Nevada, where he heads up Thermal Sky Sports, sharing his passion for engine-free aviation with illuminating lessons and tandem hang-gliding sessions. Before unleashing worthy pupils on their first solo flight with radio assistance, he'll teach them how to soar with the grace and majesty of an eagle-shaped helium balloon during low-flying ground towing sessions, tandem flights, and training-hill lessons. In his free time, Cuddy travels to various competitions and strives to break personal records, recently completing a 198-mile hang-gliding journey in 5 hours and 47 minutes.

Customer Reviews

I learnt about this business through groupon. The owner Alex was very accomodating and pleasant to work with. He offered alternate options in case of bad weather. The hang-gliding experience was awesome and went through smoothly due to clear & simple instructions & good weather. Overall, a very positive first impression!
