This is a truly special place. With great thermals, glass-offs, a huge grassy launch, easy landing zone and many nearby attractions, Sky Retreat is the perfect way for paragliders and their families to experience western N.C. For the first time, my wife and kids have enjoyed going on a paragliding trip with me. This new site is not only the best in the region, flying is now easier because my family is also looking forward to our next visit.
I love having a place where I can retreat from the noise and congestion of city life. Where the air is fresh and you can see a billion stars on a clear night. I like having a place where I can lay out my paragliding wing, feel the breeze coming up the hill and launch into the smooth air, soaring over the Blue Ridge Mountains, gently touching down in a gorgeous green meadow landing zone. A place where I can meditate, learn yoga, kayak whitewater and even learn ballroom dancing with my wife, knowing that at day's end I will peacefully fall asleep in a rustic lakeside cabin. Sky Retreat is my kind of place.
The perfect family weekend get-away in the Blue Ridge Mountains with beautiful and natural surroundings, this is the best place to spend quality time with family and friends.
My wife and I love Sky Retreat! For us it's a perfect hub for a weekend of mountain biking, paragliding, hiking and relaxing with some amazing views across the mountains. After a day full day of playing hard in the mountains, it’s hard to beat sitting on top of the ridge up there, overlooking the valley with a glass of wine. Everyone is so nice and they really know how to make us feel welcome. Highly recommend this place!
