Verbier counts no less than seven paragliding schools that offer tandem aerial experiences and training sessions. And it’s even easier in the winter with your skis on. Taking off from Les Ruinettes, which is easy to get to by gondola, you can fly over the sunny cirque of the resort and, on a clear day, discover what lies beyond the snow-capped peaks as thermals often allow pilots to attain heights of more than 3,000 m. A peaceful moment before gently touching down on the slopes.
