Why should I add Speedriding the French Alps to my bucket list?
Think the six inches of ‘air time’ you accidentally achieved last skiing holiday was impressive? (Look, we both know you didn’t mean to do it – you just didn’t see that little bump in the snow. Your secret is safe with us).
Because unless you have trained for years to become the next Stefan Kraft (he’s a big name in the world of ski jumping, trust us…), you’re unlikely to grab anything more than another foot of elevation on your next standard skiing holiday.
Unless, of course, you change your approach. Either go faster or go over a bigger jump (both tried and tested methods of breaking your collarbone) or try speedriding the French Alps.speedriding-the-french-alps
It's FLYING AWESOME.
Why speedriding the French Alps is the most adrenalinest thing you can do on two skis
Yes - we did just invent that rather clumsy word, but you have to understand that speedriding is a sport that is pretty much the perfect mixture of flying and skiing. Imagine if a bird could ski or Lindsey Vonn could fly, and you have the right idea.
With a pair of skis on your feet and a paraglider wing strapped to your back, this experience will see you soar down the mountains of the gorgeous French Alps, catching mega air while being able to land softly on the snow with no fear of instant death.
Did we mention the adrenaline? Just watch the video and you will know why.
The pros at Les Arcs speedriding school will expertly guide you through this epic experience, without holding your hand (they use radio headsets – more convenient). They have more than 10 years of experience, have taught more than 1,500 students and had zero injuries.
Or you could just wax your skis, aim for the biggest jump on the slope and go hell for leather. Hey, it's your collarbone.
- Gain huge air on skis
- Land without injury or dying
- Enjoy spending time in the gorgeous French Alps
