New Paragliding Launch Site Connects Trail Users
Pemberton’s new paragliding launch is dedicated not only to pilots but also to hikers, bikers, snowshoe adventurers, picnickers and anyone who wants to enjoy the alpine. The launch represents a coming together of the Pemberton Valley Trails Association and the Pemberton Valley Gliding Association, fulfilling a shared dream of increased accessibility to the mountains whether for simple nature enjoyment or big adventure. The launch is set in a spectacular open meadow located at an elevation of approximately 3,100 feet. While suitable for international paragliding competition, it also offers unparalleled views of glaciers, Mount Currie, Black Tusk, and vast stretches of the green valley below. The launch connects to over 24 kilometers of trails, and is accessible by car, bike, horse or foot.
