Washington Slopes

This page contains summarys and links to information about slope soaring sites and pilots from the state listed above.



Diamond Ridge, WA
Posted by Chris Erikson on Jul 16, 2006, 22:40
Diamond Ridge is a satisfying, easy to access slope 40 minutes north of the Hood River area of the Columbia Gorge. The moderately open face of the slope and sub-alpine character of the trees and meadow can be rewarding to fly, and when the wind is working, the smooth, powerful, enormous air characteristic of Gorge area slopes emerges.



Jumpoff Mountain, Washington

Intrepid Washington and Oregon slope explorer Chris Erikson has another one for us. Jumpoff Mountaion about 24 miles west of Yakima. The west face of this place looks killer!



Timberwolf Mountain, Washington
Posted by Chris Erikson on Sep 17, 2005, 15:45
Chris Erikson is back with another great slope in Washington. Timberwolf Mountain is a beautiful alpine slope located at the site of a former fire lookout at 6391’. This slope offers extremely vertical lift with the correct wind direction, unbeatable views of Mt Rainier directly to the west….and very challenging terrain if you wind up down the hill. The site is 32 miles WNW of Yakima, 8 miles N of Rimrock Lake.



McKinnley Ridge in Southwestern Washington
Posted by Eric Molstead on Apr 26, 2004, 22:56
This fine flying site is located in Southwestern Washington. The site features relatively easy road access, great lift, and decent landing zones. The ridge can be flown in west or east winds, although I personally prefer winds from the east at this location.

One of my favorite Slope soaring sites, about 20 minutes from downtown East Wenatchee, Washington, just a few miles from the site Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon bellie landed the "Miss Veedol" after the first nonstop Transpacific flight, october 5th 1931.
