Disentis is located right on the Fiesch-Chur ‘thermal highway’.
In winter, Disentis is the thermal paradise of the Alps. Thermal flying is possible as early as February.
Paragliders can take-off directly from the ski area (Lai Alv) and the Péz Ault ski lift mountain station at 2,850 metres above sea level. There are plenty of excellent take-off points available. Take-off points south-east to east. Thanks to the chair lift, it is also possible to do a running take-off in winter. Flights with an altitude difference of up to 1,600 metres are possible.
The landing point is at Sporthotel Sax near the cable car base station.
