5 Winter Parasailing in Novosibirsk

Winter Parasailing in Novosibirsk

Posted on April 1, 2011 by team


Parasailing is now a popular kind of activity, and not only in summer and in southern regions – some people adore winter parasailing. Here is a photo report from one parascending meeting in Novosibirsk.

Parasailing, also known as parascending, is a kind of outdoor activity when a person is towed behind a vehicle (usually a boat) and attached to a specially designed parachute, known as a parasail. While the boat or another vehicle is moving on, the parascender is flying in the air. The parascender has little or no control over the parachute.

In this case, the vehicle was a snowmobile and the parachute – “PZ-81 Navigable”. The height of the flight depends on the rope’s lengh. For example a 200-meters long rope allows levitating on the height of 150 meters.

    Awesome time. We do it in Florida off the back of boats

      And also down here in sunny Florida, doing it over water means you’ve got a better chance of surviving a malfunction vs. hitting the ice.

    It looks like fun although I believe I would wear a face mask. That’s got to be cold on the face like riding a motorcycle in the Wintertime. Brrr…

    Actually, you dont even need to be healthy, to do it, just alive..

    But what comes to prices, it’s not that cheap, unless you have your own parasail and boat/snowmobile. Just look at them in Florida/Caribian for example.

    Under 1 minutes the parachutist will most likely snot all over the place. All the parachutist said this is true doing free fall in the winter time.
