My girlfriend and I just did our 2nd tandem Paraglide. This time with Vail Valley Paragliding Co. We are staying in Beaver Creek and we found out about them simply from a Google search. So I called them up on Sunday evening to inquiry about a good day to fly since I knew it was a weather dependent activity. They... More

After meeting the very knowledgeable pilots and hearing their instructions, I felt 100% comfortable sending my teenage children out for a flight. Their experience was absolutely amazing and they loved every minute. I enjoyed watching from the top of the mountain as they soared down the beautiful Vail valley to the landing zone. I would highly recommend Vail Valley Parasailing... More

I had an outstanding experience paragliding in tandem with Dave. Chris, Dan and the rest of the team were all very helpful, knowledgeable, and fun. The set up is ideal - easy to get to near Edwards, CO, good equipment with expert pilots, and a great ride from the top to the bottom. Would love to do it again with... More

I am not a paragliding passenger, but a fellow pilot who visited from another state. (I have no connection to their business, I just love the sport and want to encourage others to give it a try!) I have flown with tandem pilots in many areas of the US, and abroad. It was a pleasure to meet the pilots who... More

My 12 year old daughter and I heard about Vail Valley Paragliding and did our research. The website and ensuing conversations got us excited about he experience. Any semblance of fear quickly went away once we met Dave and Bob. These guys were true professionals. Their passion for the sport and clear mastery of ensuring we had a great safe... More

Owner Dave and pilot Kris were so patient in explaining everything to this first-time senior glider. I hadn't ever considered doing this but decided to try it. Things went smoothly even after the aborted attempt due to the breeze dropping at the last minute. The flight gliding down 1500 feet seemed so short - I could have stayed up there... More

Many problems with this group. The web site says that the flights are 15-30 minutes. In reality if you do the 7:45 flight your flight will probably be under 10 minutes. They overbook reservations. On the day we attempted to do this activity 7 people were left who were unable to fly. They claimed it was the weather and the... More

You can lead the Blind to the light if they allow you, but you cannot make them see. In the United States Tandem Paragliding is allowed in the context of instruction and is not intended to be simple entertainment. It’s not a concession ride that is done for you or happens to you. IT doesn't begin and end at a... More
