Fantastic "snow tour," desmond! I LUV ATV tours because they show us a part of the world that is invisible from a typical road that a typical passenger vehicle uses.

Also, zk, your "chicken game" with the train (coaster?) was kind of scary. I guess you know what you're doing but I don't think I'd want to be your passenger, lol!

If you're playing chicken and it's not scary, you're not doing it right!

Damn, that looks like fun. I gave up skydiving and hang gliding when I had a kid. Which was before paragliding got as popular as it is now. It looks safer than hang gliding.

Is it strictly thermals that you're riding,or is there some slope lift involved?

There it's a combo of both but mostly thermals. We launch a couple of miles away at the top of Blossom Valley and fly over to El Cap if we get high enough.

As to paragliding it really came into its own around the mid 90's. I started in 98. I wouldn't say it's any more or less safe, just different.

One more, of a more tropical nature.
