Okanagan slope site

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm kinda spoiled here. This is the view from our slope site near Keremeos. It is ~2,000' to the valley floor from here. Conditions vary from day to day: when the wind is up, one could fly just about anything off there, but on a "soft" day, it is easy to just fly out from the slope and fly out the batteries on thermals.

Access is definitely not a paved road, but the old Volvo gets up there without problems.

Have a look at it on Google Earth: it is directly east of Keremeos...
