Paragliding. Of course, my bad. I saw them at Jackson Hole but it wasn't being offered for tourists to come along in tandem.

My family, 50 plus husband and wife and two teenagers are going to Cahmonix in March. We're somewhat of a go anywhere group but not into extreme thrills. No way do we want to go somewhere that a wrong turn might take us over a cliff. This all sounds a little more daunting than we expected. Guides cost more than the lift tickets. How do we go about picking a guide?
Steveturner, good advice on the snowheads forum.
In Chamonix you will need a guide to lead you in the more interesting routes and places. But don't let this thread or Chamonix image (ie ; extremo capital of the world...) fool you : there's plenty of safe, monitored skiing to be done in Cham, and some of the famous routes, like the Vallée Blanche are not extreme.
But, yes, do not venture in the glacier on your own.
