Kootenay Paragliding Adventures
Kootenay Paragliding Adventures has been offering paragliding instruction, tandem flights, and equipment sales in the Nelson area for a little over a decade. We operate principally in the Nelson area, but also as far north as New Denver.
New for this year Kootenay Paragliding Adventures is featuring the "Beach Fling": making it easier than ever to treat yourself to a tandem flight. We operate the "Beach Fling" from a beach on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, close to Kokanee Creek Provincial Park. The "Beach Fling" incorporates a purpose-built hydraulic payout. Mounted in a boat, it allows us to launch with passengers from the beach, get towed to over 2000ft above the water (CN Tower=1814ft), release from the towline, and fly back down to the beach in the style of the passengers choosing (mild to wild).
