    Hi Heinz!

    This is not my video, so i dont’ have the video file. But
    here are some links to the maps of the area. Unfortunatelly i don’t have any updated hi-resolution maps of Krasnaya Polyana.

    I believe the lifts are open all year round. It least I know they are open during winter, summer, and fall. You can find out for sure if you write to them to – this is lift operator Alpika Service. However i don’t know if you can paraglide there during winter. I mean i know people paraglide during winter in some places, i just don’t know if you can do it there.
    – “map” of the lifts with heights
    – Bottom circle is where Sochi airport is. Top red dot is where the paragliding video was taken.
    – On this “map” you see Krasnaya Polyana town (middle) and Esto-sadok/Alpika-service resort (left-front) – this is where the Paragliding video was taken.
    – Map of Krasnaya Polyana town, Radisson SAS Peak Hotel is the building with $$ signs on the right :) there are otehr good hotels in the area that may be cheaper.
    – old map (1942). Krasnaya Polyana region is on the bottom of it.
    – another map showing where krasnaya polyana is and how to get there,40.041733&spn=0.294042,0.74295&t=h&om=1
    – and this how it looks on Google maps (only low resolution)
