Event Details

Heli-Paragliding in Atlin
Jamie Tait has again offered to give paraglider pilots a ride up to the top of Atlin Mountain as part of the Atlin Snowmachine Hill Climb.   The Helicopter can take 5 pilots/wings (flying a smaller heli for this event). The conditions are looking favourable, but... this is paragliding. There will be a base camp on the other side of the lake as part of the community event. There will be a bar-b-q, hot-dogs, hot chocolate and coffee to take a break after flying down. Multiple rides up are possible. Costs will be $75 per lift up the mountain. There will also be a heli-shuttle to and from base camp. Pilots can also bring their snow machines and ride across the lake. The races are fun to watch. Bring you binoculars as well as snacks and something to drink. Pilots should be prepared to be self-sufficient for some time if para-waiting ensues. Non pilots are also welcome to take a scenic flight. The cost is the same.
