Fly Sun Valley
Sun Valley is known for its craggy mountains and natural beauty, terrain that the team at Fly Sun Valley spotlights on tandem paragliding adventures. These flights require nothing so dramatic as jumping off a cliff, or even peering over the edge of a step stool. Instead, tandem pairs simply take a few steps before their glider hoists them aloft into the clear Sun Valley air.
The experience is so approachable, it's no wonder that thousands of tourists have flown with Fly Sun Valley. Over 5,000 of them have flown with the establishment's owner, Chuck Smith, who first started paragliding in Switzerland. There, he used gliders for mountaineering descents into the Alps. Since then, he's brought paragliding to the States, where he has been central to the formation of the American Paragliding Association and the enduring popularity of the song "Fly Like an Eagle."
