Speedriding, the latest sport to hit our slopes. This new sport is not so extreme, it depends upon the way you do it.
We suggest that you have a good level of skiing ability and you under take a course as provided for by Parapro. You do need to be an expert at paragliding but some experience is helpful as the wings used are very simple and easy to use. It’s recommended a PG1 paragliding course is taken prior to hitting the slopes and learning the basics of speed riding.
Parapro will be organising Speed Riding courses over the 2017 winter. For those interested in purchasing your speed riding wing and joining us on the courses please contact Parapro to book your place.
