French Skiing and Flying Championships

All levels
A first for Courchevel: the resort hosts the first ever French Skiing and Flying Championships!

Over a hundred paragliders will fly through the air above the mountaintops with their skis on! Taking part in the acrobatics world championships, the creme de la creme of the discipline will be sure to put on a show!

Friday 10th March: opening with the precision landing
For this event, the paragliders will need to show great skill if they want to stand out from the crowd! A target will be placed on the snow front in Courchevel 1850 and throughout the day flights will take off from La Loze. A beautiful show awaits at the heart of the resort…
The winners will qualify to represent France during the World Precision Championships in 2017.

11th and 12th March: French Skiing and Flying Championships!
This event comprises a series of precision exercises during the flight, such as touching the snow with skis at specific locations on the course and taking off again without the wing hitting the ground; otherwise known as Touch and Go! Or touching slalom posts mid-flight, aiming at a target, sliding on the snow for several metres with the wing on the paraglider's head before taking off again…
At the end of the weekend, the male and female winners will be crowned “French Skiing and Flying Champions 2017"

On Saturday 11th March, the heats will take place on the "M” run and in the off-piste section of “Les Creux”, setting off from the "Saulire".
On Sunday 12th March, the heat will take place in le Praz, setting off from “La Loze".
