Colorado Paragliding employs instructors/pilots with many years of flying experience at Mt. Zion as well as in various locations around the world. The season begins in early May.
Tandem paragliding in Golden
Flight time is anywhere between 15 to 25 minutes and can last longer depending on weather conditions, specifically the lifting air that is present. However, the whole experience lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours from meeting in the landing zone parking lot to packing up the gear.
A certain level of robustness is necessary as you may be asked to help carry the flying equipment, which weighs about 20 to 30 lbs, a short way uphill. Wear good, closed toe shoes, long pants, a light jacket, sunglasses and sunscreen. Also bring water and your camera, which you can use while paraglidng.
