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.

A parascender can also unhook and land just as real parachute jumpers do.

So, how does it all happen? At first you are equipped with parachute fixings and instructed.

Then parachute skirts are straightened and “stood”.

Then you’re attached to the rope and taken up to the sky! Everything is very simple and safe.

Not only may a simple uncontrolled parachute be used, but also a “square” – a controlled one.

    • 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.

  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
