The number of options available for having a fun-filled and fulfilling ski trip are awful. One can always opt for the direct approach and nail it right at its proactive namesake sports. Others can even be creative and go beyond the selection of competitive activities one can enjoy in a ski resort. But for those who wish to have their adrenaline cravings stoked, there is a high demand for physically challenging pastimes. For anyone who considers generic skiing as a boring option, there are a number of great reasons to choose ski flying. Here are the following:
Fighting the fear of heights
Every person has fantasized about flying in one significant point of their lives. Ski flying is just exactly the kind of activity you need. But the most obvious obstacle to this experience is the relatively familiar fear of heights. Altophobia remains to be one of the top five fears all human beings are very familiar with. The idea of leaping off the alpine cliff beyond the safe terrain of the ski vacation destination is just too daunting. However, overcoming that phobia truly marks an important milestone in one's overall positive lifetime experiences. People who are plagued with fear of heights all their life can certainly consider his or her first successful ski flight as the greatest hallmark of triumph.
Less prone to physical trauma
Ironically, the reliably scariest type of skiing proves to be the least culpable of physical damage. This is due to the fact that the only real danger to riding a parachute or glider after leaping off the alpine ridges is just an "imagined one". Ski fliers do not have to contend with the real dangers of miscalculated split second flip or landing, which is responsible for the notorious number of fractured ankles and sprained joints. Without faced with perilous rock walls and outcropping bluffs, there is no real physical danger to a circling the unobstructed air field.
Majestic view of the landscape
Another very rewarding advantage of ski flying is gaining a more intimate perspective of the landscape below. Unlike a helicopter ride, your view of the landscape is controlled by the pilot and you do not have full control of your aerial tour. A ski flier can always veer his or her glider to alter the vantage point, therefore being able to utilize the 360 degree angle while on midair. This ski trip activity always goes best with a GoPro camera to record a successful descent.
