Sightseeing (Picture BC photo)
Excellent thermal conditions make Hope Regional Airpark a home base for gliding, or soaring as it is often called.
When the westerly winds from the Fraser Valley hit the local mountains, and in particular Mount Hope, they create strong upward columns of air which can keep a glider in flight for hours.
At the weekend, members of the Vancouver Soaring Association take to the skies and invite would-be enthusiasts on 20- to 30-minute orientation flights April through October. Get there before 9:30am to be ahead of the "let's try this" line-up and be prepared to get into the groove.
The atmosphere is uber casual with entire families camped out in tents, trailers and car top canvasses for a weekend of fun and flight.
