Why do I have to buy a landing card?
The BASE landing fields in Lauterbrunnen and Walenstadt do not belong to the Swiss Base Association. They belong to private people (local farmers). By buying a Landing Card you’re allowed to land on the fields which are usually marked with a windsock.
How much is it? Where can I get it?
The Landing Card costs 40 CHF and is valid for a whole year (January until December). First you have to register on our homepage, then you can pay online or in Lauterbrunnen (Horner Pub, Tourist Information, Alpinebase Hostel).
How do I pay?
You can pay online (credit card, PayPal) or in cash at the Horner Pub, the Tourist Information or the Alpinebase Hostel in Lauterbrunnen.
Do I have to register every year?
Yes. The community of Lauterbrunnen and Walenstadt would like to know how many jumps we do per year. It’s also important to update your emergency contact (please choose a family member).
Does all the money go to farmers?
No. 25 CHF go to the local farmers, 10 stay within the Swiss Base Association and 5 CHF go to the selling person. Board members of the SBA don’t get any money. We use your money for new ropes, new windsocks, new posters, the maintenance of our jumping sites, etc.
