There's something to be said about standing on the top of a narrow chute with a gentle breeze – and getting ready to jump down it!  The Remarkables have a number of great terrain runs.

The main objective around the Remarks will be to fly from the summit of single cone – but today the wind was slightly (180 degrees) coming from the wrong direction and Dugald couldn't come out to play – so it's still needing to be put in the bag….. 

This short video shows just how little lift I'm getting from the new canopy and how much speed can be generated.   We expect that these speeds will be similar to our landing speeds above 5500m.  A snow landing is pretty easy but a foot landing – well, we'll have to practice that one.
