A snowtrike is a motorized paraglider that enables a pilot and passenger to fly up over the ski resort for about 20-30 minutes and then land back in the same place, the Altisurface of Val Thorens. Enjoy an unforgettable aerial view as you soar above the valley at a comfortable speed of 65km/hr.
Your pilot, Timothy Green, will tailor the flight to your sense of adventure/extreme, whether it be a smooth panoramic flight over the valley and resort of Val Thorens or an exhilarating acrobatic flight.
Weather permitting, you can even fly up over some of the amazing summits and glaciers in the area to witness an amazing panoramic view of the Massifs de la Maurienne, the Tarentaise, the Vanoise or all the way to the Mont Blanc and the Ecrins mountain ranges.
