• Chamonix bans wingsuit jumps Local by-law forbids wingsuit jumps from Brevent & the Aiguille du Midi

    Following the tragic death of Norwegian wingsuit jumper in Chamonix, the Chamonix mayor has banned wingsuit jumps from both the Brevent and the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix.
    The new by-law prohibiting wingsuit jumps from these sites is in immediate effect and information panels will be put in place at the bottom of both lift stations.
    The by-law can be found online here and states that wingsuit jumps may affect the safety of other aerial sports.

    UPDATE:

    The préfecture de Haute-Savoie (regional jurisdiction department) have announced they do not have plans to ban the sport in the Haute-Savoie and that a decision along these lines would need to be national.
