Weekly Session Utah
The Southside is known for its early morning southerly winds. The ridge is 300′ high and clear of any obstacles. It accommodates students who want to practice kiting, slope launches, high-wind launches, and flying.
If conditions permit, groups can venture over to the Inspiration Point (Inspo). It’s a quick drive from the Southside to the top of launch and offers thermalling opportunities. If there is an opportunity for a glass-off we head over to the Northside.
Meet in the top parking lot near the bathrooms (Southside launch)
