Paragliding Trip: heli-ski and speed flying in Canada

In the North West tip of Canada, close to the Alaskan border,  lie the Skeena mountains. Mike and I have undertaken several trips there with Northern Escape where we believe we have been the first people to ever speed fly down these vast glaciers and peaks!


Our 2012 and 2013 Heli trips with Northern Escape featured:

125 Heli drops
330,000 vertical feet.

Special thanks to Benny and Northern-Escape:

We offer speed flying courses in the Swiss alps.
