What's great about the site, in Chelan, is that it has a great mountain launch with a dramatic exposure of the Columbia River Gorge and XC possibilities to the South, East and North. To the East is a high plain of some of the best XC flats I've ever flown. Unlimited landing spots, epic climbs to above 10,000', and dusties that you can see for 20 miles make this a place to remember.
PWC (Paragliding World Cup) event to be held in the USA in 12 years. PWC events attract the best pilots from all over the world and are the highest level of Paragliding XC competition. I am really looking forward to flying with the best and brightest. This will also be my first opportunity to see the newest, exotic 2-liner wings from Ozone, Niviuk, and SOL.
In August we will travel to Sun Valley, Idaho for the US Nat's. I've never flown Sun Valley, but the site looks great. This event will also be a Pre-PWC event.
My Gradient Avax XC3 should be here soon and I hope to get familiar with it before flying it in anger at the PWC ;-)
