i havent flown there for about ten yrs but i dont imagine it has changed must becuase the trees out front would of had to grown really high to create any real turbulence.Not very likely

Thanks guys. I think I have an idea of where it may be now. Directions would be great!

I tried flying electric but the cord kept coming unplugged!

I went on ski hill again today! Tried the S slope this time. The slope was quite nice for gliding (better than the NW slope that I tried before). With wind speed about 10km/h, the slope creates enough lift for my Fling 2M to soar. Here are some photos of the S slope.
