WINTER & SPRING FLIGHTS (December 2016 – May 2017)

During the Winter months we mainly fly our Classic High Flight from Rothorn, this is due to the ground on the summer launch sites still being covered in a thick blanket of white snow. When the wind permits we can also fly from Klein Matterhorn in the winter and Gornergrat in the spring.
