Canadian Rockies Paragliding Tour

For the last 4 years I have now guided several Dolomite Paragliding tours for www.BlueSky.at. Susanne and Stefan decided to offer a Canadian Rockies Paragliding tour this summer and within a short time the tour was sold out.

On June 14th Nathan and I headed to Vancouver to pick up the BlueSky group (15 pilots incl. Susanne and Stefan) from the Vancouver airport. The group was a mixture of couples and guys from any sort of life and varying from a wide range of ages (up to 72 years).

The first stop was Pemberton. The weather was not favorable for flying, so we  spend the 3 days doing the tourist thing in Whistler and checked out the new launch site Jim and Corinne (and local pilots) are setting up for the coming up Canadian Nationals.
The next stop was Vernon. We got some nice flights going from "King Eddy" (near Vernon) and at "Coopers"(in Lumby).
The 3rd stop was in Golden followed with an evening flight at Mt. Seven. Part of the group stayed at Hugo and Brandy's place and at Sandor Lake. We got one day of good flying conditions in Golden and spend then a day for Lake Emerald, Moraine Lake and Lake Louise and other attractions within the Banff and Yoho National Park.
The last stop was in Invermere with a flight from Mt. Swansea and other local activities.

It was a great 2 weeks, to get more details about the tour, simply check out the pictures below.
