Décollage de Merlet

How do I get there?


Practice: paragliding
Orientation: South / South West.

Observations / Dangers: inflation often tricky (take-off on a slope). Particular aerology in the thermodynamics of the valley wind. Avoid the area to the right when exiting take-off (rolls). Excellent dynamic performance on the left after takeoff on the western shoulder of Parc Merlet.

Layout: club information board, windsock.
