Speed riding is a new extreme sport combining skiing and paragliding. The basics are simple- put your skies on, strap yourself to an open wing- shaped canopy and start skiing down the slope. There are no limits on how steep the slope is, or how big the jumps are. If it’s too steep you just go airborn and maneuver yourself down until you touch the snow again. In Riksgränsen we have a very safe area perfect for training start and landing. The landing is near a ski lift to quickly get you back to the start. Depending on experience and progress we will also do more advanced flights where often hiking is needed.
The gear rental is counted in half days, approximately 3 hours/ half day. 1-2 persons per gear.
