There is something more rewarding doing sports after having to fight for it. Alpinists hiking up and skiing down know of this already. Within paragliding we call it hike’n fly – hike up the mountain and fly down.
Today me and two of my friends hiked up one of the mountains below Åreskutan in Åre. Hiking on the first winter day, cold and some new snow glistening in the winter sun was a bit swetty but very beautiful.
From the top we got a nice but a little bumpy ride down, especially me who was new to minigliders..
