I think I have been entirely too boring for way to long! Then I saw a deal through a local website for tandem paragliding for only $59 a person. I hope T won't mind finding out on Facebook that he will be joining me- teehee! We will probably wait for the weather to get warmer but it is something to look forward too!
Cloud 9 Paragliding has the privilege of teaching at the premier training site in the country: The Point of the Mountain Flight Park in Salt Lake City, Utah. Pilots come from around the world to experience the smooth air, predictable weather and consistent ridge-soaring conditions at the Point. In the mornings the wind normally blows from the south, so most lessons are taught on the South Side. In the afternoon, the winds normally switch to blow from the north, so we fly our PM sessions on the North Side. Both sites are stupendously convenient, with spacious parking lots, room for tent camping, food and fuel close-at-hand and drive-up access. (The latter is, as seasoned pilots will tell you, a huge bonus: no hiking the hill for each flight!) Due to the unique conditions at the Point of the Mountain Flight Park, flights of several hours are very common here.
