Paragliding: take-offs and landing points

Take off points depend on the time-slot and weight of the participant:
– Morning flights: passengers take off from the top of the Cachette chair-lift in Arc 1600. You will need to get to Arc 1600 of your own accord and passengers are picked up by the pilots at the bottom of the chair-lift (ticket for the passenger included in the price of the flight)
– 13h45 onwards: There are 3 possible take-off points between Arc 1800 and Vallandry and the pilots chose the best one for the current air conditions at the time of the flight. Pilots pick up the passengers from the Arc Aventures main office and take them to the take-off.
Landing zones:
– Morning flights: flights will land in the field between the train station and the funicular train station in Bourg St Maurice
– 12h15 onwards: Illettes landing field in Hauteville-Gondon
Passengers are driven back to the start point by bus or funicular and their tickets are included in the price of the flight.
