If you have ever wondered how Mount 7 in Golden got its name, there is no better way of finding out than by going tandem paragliding. However, by late June, the answer is always gone. For a hint, think of summer sun melting winter snow.
Golden is the epicenter of Canadian paragliding. All Canadian distance records have been set from this peak above Golden, including a tandem distance of 128km! The beauty of tandem is all the hard work is done by the guide. You get to focus on the adrenalin and euphoria.
