Launch site Fanas
Fanas is a very popular, versatile flying area with excellent thermals. Cross-country flights to Arlberg, Innsbruck, Bolzano, Liechtenstein and the Rhine Valley are possible. The start is always from the mountain station of the cable car.
Starting possibilities: There are starting possibilities at three different locations. The most comfortable way, right next to the mountain station is the Eggli (1695 m above sea level). This launch site is recommended for southeast, south and not too strong southwest winds.
The other two places are located on the Höreli (1800 m above sea level), which can be reached after a short walk. One of them is in the direction of the cable car and very convenient to start. This is suitable for the same wind conditions as the Eggli. At the other you start heading north. The wildlife sanctuary is also located in this direction, which is why the pilots turn left shortly after take-off and start at the earliest on the northern slope on the left with the soaren, i.e. over the Höreli – Ochsenstein ridge. The north launch site is suitable for northwest, north and northeast winds.
Another starting point is the Sassauna (2307 m above sea level). Whether you want to reach this with Toplanding or with a hike, everyone can decide for themselves.
Landing sites: If you have missed the thermal updrafts and want to go up again with the Bähnli, you can land in Fanas. The landing site is located about 200 m above the valley station. It is unplugged and signaled with a windsock.
In Grüsch, the landing site is located at the eastern end of the village, in summer necessarily along the long dirt road through the large fields. Windsock available. Please do not enter fields or tall grass. Strong valley wind in the afternoon!
