Skiing and paragliding is the perfect combination in winter, the most exhilarating activity you can do in Davos.
The take-off is right in the ski area of Jakobshorn or Parsenn. First, we glide down the starting slope for a few meters and then veer towards the sky.
During the flight, we touch down multiple times on off-piste slopes to experience the thrill of taking off again.
The landing is gentle in the deep snow near the downhill run and ski lifts. Flying over the snow-covered winter landscape of the Davos mountains is simply breathtakingly beautiful.
The perfect addition to your next ski day in Davos. Book the experience now or give it as a gift voucher.
Ski&Fly can be combined with any of our winter offers (e.g. Early Bird, Flight for 2, …)!
Meeting Point and Takeoff Location
We’ll meet at the base station of the Jakobshorn cable car in Davos. The cable car will take us to the summit of Jakobshorn, where our takeoff spots are located (exact address: Brämabüelstrasse 11, 7270 Davos Platz). Alternatively, we can also meet at the top of the Jakobshorn ski area, other ski areas or in Klosters.
Once we reach the top, the pilot will assess the weather and wind conditions and choose the most suitable takeoff spot. From our takeoff spots, you’ll already have a spectacular view.
With a height difference of approximately 1,000 meters between launch and landing, there will be plenty of time to savor the flight.
Preparation, Takeoff, Flight, and Landing
Before takeoff, you’ll receive a detailed briefing about the tandem flight, including the takeoff and landing procedures. For takeoff, you’ll need to run straight ahead with the pilot for a few meters until the paraglider assumes the flying position and lifts us off the ground.
During the flight, you can easily communicate with your pilot and share any specific preferences you may have, such as periodically touching down with skis, taking control and steering yourself, experiencing G-forces during exciting maneuvers, or simply enjoying the breathtaking, snow-covered landscape during a peaceful flight. The winter landing area is located right next to the ski slope near the Carjöl chairlift (directly adjacent to the chairlift and a 5-minute walk from the Jakobshorn base station and Davos Platz train station). After Ski&Fly, you won’t waste any time here and can immediately hit the slopes again! In Klosters, we land near the sports center.
Recommended Clothing and Other Important Details for the Ski&Fly Paragliding
For the flight, we recommend wearing warm ski clothing (including gloves and ski or sunglasses). Photos and a video of the flight are already included in the price. Not included in the price is your mountain lift ticket (if you don’t have a ski pass). The total duration of the experience is approximately 1.5-2 hours. The actual flight time (airtime) ranges from 15 to 35 minutes (depending on thermals and wind).
Good skiing skills are required for the Ski&Fly experience!
