While down at Point of The Mountain we had great instruction that was given to both my wife and I from Kevin and Steve; they are both on top of their profession in terms of flying and teaching. My wife and I both had very different learning stylers, and they were quickly able to identify that and adjust their teaching to best suit us as individuals. Being a teacher myself, I took this for granted until I came home and started flying at my local site. I have quickly come to realize how all encompassing our instruction was. Being a novice pilot at best, I was surprised to be able to recognize many errors some of the other pilots were making, and even more shocked when I was able to give suggestions on launching techniques that were happily received. I even watched a guy try to repack his reserve into another harness, and only one other guy knew how to do it. I thought that this was just standard instruction; I guess not. For a sport that has the potential for dangerous situations, I am glad that our two instructors were not only great flyers, but teachers, meteorologists, and understanding individuals that truly want all of their students to be as safe as possible. I will go back to Cloud 9 again for future instruction, and I urge anyone that is serious about paragliding to go there as well.

In August 2011, my fiancée and I learned to paraglide with Cloud 9, and we would recommend the folks there to anyone interested in getting into the sport. The Point of the Mountain, just south of Salt Lake City, Utah, is a great place to learn to fly. All the instructors at Cloud 9 were patient, and they did a great job of making sure that we were grasping the basics and that we felt comfortable and secure. Kevin, the primary instructor and program coordinator was exceptionally skilled in and knowledgeable about all things paragliding – from basic and advanced maneuvers, to wind patterns and weather. After we completing the P-2 certification program, we also purchased gear. They gave us a good deal, and Kevin gave us candid advice and helped pick the gear that would best fit our respective skill sets. As a number of the other reviewers indicated, there were usually several other students with us, but there were always 3 to 5 instructors providing ample direction and supervision. Furthermore, although some of the gear was a couple of years old and had been well used (which is not surprising given that students are rough on equipment when learning), none of it was faulty or unsafe by any means. Put simply, my fiancée and I cannot recommend Could 9 highly enough. If you are going to the Point of the Mountain from out of town (and want to be almost ensured you will complete the P-2 certification program, even in the face of slow progression and/or bad weather), you might want to consider allotting 14 full days, rather than their recommended 10, to complete program.

I have owned my own gear for about 4 years and have been through numerous instructors. I finally settled down and found a home with Cloud 9. I aint got nuthin but mad love for the guys at Cloud 9. I feel comfortable, not neglected, and am in the hands of multiple instructors who are on the mountain every day. Thank you Cloud 9 and I look forward to doing much more business with you over the next few years. Thanks again guys!

I learned from Cloud 9 and had a wonderful experience! Yes there are a lot of students that use Cloud 9, but they also have the most instructors on the hill. My instructor was Kevin, and he was voted best instructor of the year in a national magazine. Yes the gliders that they will put you on for the very first time will be older, but they are inspected every single year and are safe. As soon as your skills progress and they send you off of the top of the hill, they will put you on an excellent glider. By this time you are hooked and you end up buying all of your own gear anyways. I don't know who told you that it would cost $7000. I only spent $5000, and that included lessons for a month. Glider, harness, reserve, stuff sack and a bunch of other stuff. If you are truly on a budget they can help you out with buying used gear. Eventually you will want new gear anyways, so why go used? I bet that your father never taught you how to drive a Ferrari as your first car, but that Honda was just as safe, and better suited to the skills you were trying to learn. I tell all of my friends to use Cloud 9.

I had the opportunity to participate in a tandem flight recently. I was STOKED! I had been para-sailing before and this was another thing I wanted to do this year, and to be honest it was highly disappointing. I paid for a tandem flight that I thought would be a bit longer than 30 seconds in the air. All we did was jump off the bunny hill, go to one side of the hill then back and land. I personally don't think it was worth the money I paid to do a tandem flight. I wasn't wanting lessons or for it to become a hobby, i just wanted a paragliding ride worth a thousand words, and I didn't get that. However, I'm sure that the lessons are much cooler, but don't pay for just a tandem flight, it isn't worth it...

Learning to paraglide with Cloud Nine far far exceeded my expectations. The entire staff, Steve, Kevin, Mike and Justin were amazing. They had me up and flying with confidence in a few days. By the end of my P-2 intensive course I logged almost enough flights and time in the air for a P-3. They were great in steering me toward the right gear and helped me find some used equipment that would fit my budget. I would and have recommend them to all of my friends. I honestly could not imagine a better school and better group of instructors to learn from. Thanks for the best learning experience of my life!!
