2015 King Mountain

Post by Salubrious »

Hey Y'all,

Next week (July) is the King Mountain event. Starts on the 6th.

King is one of the more consistent competition sites in the US. The flying can be quite spectacular!- the Lost River Range features the highest mountains in Idaho. They are anywhere from 5000 to 7000 feet high. There are lots of good landing areas and not a lot of cactus; landing elevations are usually about 5000 feet. In a nutshell, its easy to fly, but at the same time demanding and challenging. If you've not seen the Dreaming Awake at King Mountain video, here's a link:
