    I don't think the hill near me is actively giving lessons or taking flights. I have been to the top a couple times and the slope doesn't look maintained. Things seem a bit over grown making the take off very narrow. Nothing like what I see in your video.

    What is the hill near you?

    Since I live in Utah now I've have much more paragliding opportunities. I've been flying both a full sized PG and one about half the size (mini wing/speedwing) and have got a few ski launched flights in as well.

    I'm hoping to be able to fly when I come back home this summer, judging by previous posts it looks like there's an active community up north.

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    Utah is pretty cool. It's like CO but more accessible, everything is just a lot closer. Wasn't a great ski season by Utah standards, but it was by CO standards which I've grown accustomed to.

    Paragliding is awesome too, there's a few spots where you can even get lift served access.

    Traffic and smog sucks but overall it's a win!
