Speed riding is like skiing in 3D, and it is at Saint Lary!


A few hours ago you were a human being skiing like any other, firmly in contact with mother earth. But suddenly… you feel strangely light, almost weightless, your skis are skimming over the snow leaving only the faintest of traces, your body wants to fly, but it is not a jump… you are flying : long live speed-riding!

The strengths

  • The super sensation of this mix of skiing and flying
  • A superb lightness of feeling, between snow and sky
  • Slopes with regular gradients and without obstacles

Speed riding is like skiing in 3D: going left and right but also upwards. With the help of a sail, smaller than that used in paragliding, you can take off and perform jumps. There’s no need for lots of wind as the motor generates the required speed. When in use, speeds of 60 km/h are easily reached. Discover a feeling of lightness between snow and sky. No need to have already tried paragliding to try out this sport but it is necessary to be a confident skier. There are specially-designated pistes for speed riding served by ski lifts. The level and unobstructed sloped are ideal for beginners under instruction. Instructors teach their students via radio and follow their progress.
