When in Glenwood Springs, definitely check out Adventure Paragliding! What a wonderful day! So much fun! You meet the instructors and crew on Grand Avenue and then take a short trip up Red Mountain to the take-off spot. It is the most thrilling feeling to take off and glide through the air -- as soon as you are airborne, you feel so serene! You are flying through the air looking down at the birds! What a cool feeling. The flight lasts from 5 to 15 minutes but the "high" lasts all day! As soon as you land you want to do it again!!! Super fun! Glenwood Springs was just rated the top small town in America for fun and one of the activities that convinced the rating team was their trip with Adventure Paragliding! If you google Traveling Jules Glenwood Springs, you will find the video featuring their flight experience!

If you are in Glenwood Springs you should absolutely place Paragliding at the top of your activities list. Although I am licensed to fly single engine airplanes, I had always been intrigued by the thought of non-powered soaring. After witnessing several paragliders floating over the town I contacted Adventure Paragliding to arrange tandem flights for my wife and me. Pine, Tom, A.J. and the other pilots are experienced and professional, always placing your safety and comfort first. Since you are securely attached to your pilot in a tandem harness you have only to relax and enjoy an exhilarating and serene flight launched from the gentle slope of a nearby mountaintop, gliding over the town, taking in scenic views of the valley, and finally landing softly in a field. As I flew with A.J. he patiently answered my numerous questions about the mechanics of flying paragliders. My wife and I are now hooked on paragliding and can’t wait to do it again. Check out Adventure Paragliding at their website http://www.adventureparagliding.com or call them at (970) 274-1619.
