FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I really need a ski lesson?
Regardless of your past as a skier, a ski lesson will always benefit you. Whether you want to perfect your technique, get off the beaten track, or be accompanied around unfamiliar parts of the Portes du Soleil area, a licensed instructor will help you achieve your goals. Taking a ski lesson will help you regain your self-confidence after a long break in your practice or even an accident.
How far in advance should I book a ski lesson?
Ski lessons are very popular, especially during school holidays! There are more students than there are instructors. So to ensure you'll benefit from the experience of a Parallèle Activities ski instructor in the Morzine-Avoriaz resort and the Portes du Soleil area, book in advance. Ideally, you should book a few months in advance. If you want to get ski lessons during the Christmas holidays, you should book in September at the latest.
Ideally, how long should a ski lesson last?
The answer to this question depends on your desires, your goals and your budget (it does matter 😉). Generally speaking, the more time you spend with your Parallèlle Activities instructor, the more you'll benefit from it and therefore the more considerable your progress will be. Also, starting at 4 hours per day, the price per hour is lowered, which gives you a better value for your money. You would like to do the “Tour des Portes du Soleil” around Morzine-Avoriaz? Not a problem! You'll just need a whole day for that.
What do you need to know for a paragliding flight?
Do you want to go paragliding over the Morzine-Avoriaz resort and the Portes du Soleil area between two runs? Just come as you are! All you need is : 🎿 Your skis on your feet, To be warmly dressed so as not to be cold, 🧤 Gloves or mittens so that you don't lose your fingers, 🕶️ A pair of sunglasses or a ski mask for style. If you have a ski helmet, it's even better. If not, your paragliding instructor will lend you one! There is no age limit for paragliding, you just have to want to! If you are under 18, you need your parents' permission (yes, just like at school). If you are a senior citizen and can ski, you can surely fly as well! Because you'll be launching on skis, you must be able to keep your skis straight. In addition, if take-off cannot happen due to weather or snow conditions, you must be able to ski down a blue run on your own (class 2 or 2nd star level required).
Can you get vertigo from paragliding?
Vertigo is only triggered when there is a contradiction between your eyes, your inner ear and your feet. In paragliding, since your feet don't touch the ground, you will not feel any sensation of vertigo.
