Our Rules

It is a huge privilege that basejumping is legal in Switzerland. Please respect our rules, the jumping sites and the local farmers and authorities. We want to continue jumping and so do you.



Basejumping is self-regulated. Therefore, if you notice inappropriate behavior by other jumpers, talk to them!

Please do not advice unknown jumpers: You do not know their skill level, experience and mental state.

Please do not listen to people who try to convince you to go beyond your level of experience or skills. Take one step at a time and progress slowly. The cliffs will stay longer than anyone of us.

Study the OVERVIEW and think about which exits are suitable for you. The ratings are subjective and a recommendation.


Be aware that some exit points are not suitable for your skill level. Know your limits and don’t pull low!

In Switzerland it is mandatory to have a third party insurance. Contact MOBILIAR if you live in Switzerland.

Air-Glaciers & Paragliders

The valley of Lauterbrunnen is small and we share the airspace with helicopters and paragliders. Helicopters and paragliders fly often close to the wall (because of strictly defined flying routes or to find thermals). They cannot see or hear us. 

It is our responsibility to watch out for paragliders and helicopters.

If you don't call Air-Glaciers before you jump, you endanger the lives of the helicopter pilot and his passengers.

If you don't do a proper visual check before you jump, you endanger the lives of paragliders. Please be careful and we can all keep jumping!
