When simply “seeing” a destination just won’t do.
Feature Adventure: The Air Up There
On summer evenings starting at 5:15 p.m., you’ll learn the basics of weight shifting, brake toggles, and gearing up for your tandem flight before taking Snow King’s Scenic Chairlift Ride nearly 8,000 feet up the mountain. You and your instructor break into a jog that lasts anywhere from two steps to 10 yards (stronger winds mean fewer strides) before the fabric paragliding wing inflates, sending you aloft. On your descent to a trio of landing zones, which could last from 10 minutes to an hour (again, depending on the wind), you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of town as the sun illuminates the valley and the Tetons in the distance.
