Vermont’s Mad River Valley is known for its picturesque views – now imagine seeing them from 5,500 feet as you soar overhead! There’s no other experience quite like it.
Piloted glider rides provide breathtakingly gorgeous views of the Mad River Valley and beyond. Your pilot will point out the landmarks as you soar. Weather permitting, you’ll even see such distant ones as New Hampshire’s Mount Washington and the Adirondacks beyond Lake Champlain.
Soaring in a piloted glider is different from flying in a plane in all the best ways.
First and foremost, gliders glide, rather than power, through the air, providing a much quieter ride. Secondly, gliders are smaller and sleeker than aircraft. This means your views are less restricted and your sense of flight heightened. The difference is not at all unlike that between being in a powerboat … or a kayak.
Both West Hill House B&B innkeepers, Peter and Susan, have experienced Mad River Valley glider rides and returned exhilarated. The pilot sits behind you, doing all the work, while you relax up front, soaking up the experience: just you and the view. Shutterbugs who own a zoom lens will want to bring it along with their biggest memory card. This is one memory your smartphone will not do justice!
