It were two wonderful paragliding days in Zillertal, Austria. Sunny and warm, with temperatures of up to 14 degrees: fantastic weather that does not fit in Alps in this time of the year. The climate is definitely changing.
I made 6 flights in very calm air, and tried for the first time the spiral dives. Wow! The speed and the sounds made my heart pumping. On my last flight I dived 140 meters in 14 seconds, which makes around 10 m/s sink speed.
Here is the panorama photo of the start site “Melchboden” in 2000m above the sea level. The photo was made 2 years ago, but the weather conditions were the same like the this weekend. Hope you will get a bit of impression how beautiful it was
