Resort Guide

  • Getting to Val d'Isere

    Val d'Isere is most easily accessed via Lyon and Geneva international airports; both under three hours away by car, while the transfer time from Chambéry airport is approximately two hours, but with fewer "cheap flights" and less availability.

  • Where to Stay

    Our camps and progression weeks are growing year by year. All participants are looking for the best possible fit for their needs and budget. We therefore have three nicely priced different accommodation options available for this season. Special discounts are available in all three categories for groups (+5 pax size):

FAQ

  • What level of skiing is required to get started with Speed Riding?

    You do not need to be a Freeride Pro or an active member of the Austrian Ski National Team. However, the better you ski the easier your progression will be in the sport. A level three skier accordingly to french standards or basically being able to do solid parallel turns on red and black runs and a reasonable off-piste experience is definitely a great advantage. If you haven’t ever skied before, please sign up for an skiers Entry Level course in order to learn the basics of skiing before getting into Speed Riding. Please let us know and we’d be happy to put you in touch with experienced instructors who’ll be able to Fast-Track this stage.
  • Do I need to know how to fly a parachute, paraglider or other canopy?

    No canopy flying experience or license (Paragliding, Skydiving, Hang Gliding) is required. You will learn to fly on larger and slower wings, allowing you to progress with your flying skills in a safe and very controlled manner. Our training areas always feature hugely oversized landing areas.
  • Can I Speed Ride with my Snowboard?

    Yes you can, however the experience and control is much better with skis. Please note that the Entry Level course (first 4 – 5 days) MUST BE done on skis.
  • Is Speed Riding equipment provided at the Entry Level Course?

    Yes, SKIANDFLY is providing the latest, most functional and innovative speed riding equipment in all possible sizes to match individual students requirements
  • Is Insurance included?

    No, as all customers seem to have different requirements and preferences. There is a number of suitable insurance packages available through the FFVL (French Paragliding Association) and the independent British Action Sports insurance broker DOGTAG.COM. Prices for relevant packages start from €35/year for the annual FFVL student 3rd party cover.
  • Can you organise ski and ski-boot hire?

  • Where is the nearest hospital?

    The nearest hospital is the main public Hospital in Bourg St Maurice about 30 km away from the ski village.
  • Can you organise airport transfers?

    Yes, we can. Please message us your arrival and departure date & time, flight number and number of passengers and we’d be happy to arrange SHARED or PRIVATE transfers from Geneva or Lyon.
  • Where to stay in Val d'Isère?

    Please get in touch and let us know your requirements. Solo, couple, group travellers, shared accommodation, private chalet or apartment, we have options in all variations and range of prices.
  • Can I get a refund of my deposit?

    Unfortunately, deposit refunds are not available. However, if you cannot attend the event you may change the name on the ticket and pass it onto a friend. Please contact us ASAP if you are unable to attend and would like to appoint a friend to attend.
