CLOSED THIS WEEKEND

SCSA will be closed to the public this Friday through Monday 2/23/18 – 2/26/18 as we will be training our instructors and ground crew on our new winch. Many of you are calling and asking when you can get winch training. We will make an announcement through this weekly e-mail and through Schedule Pointe, when we are ready to safely introduce the winch into our operations.

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!

WAVE ON SUNDAY!

Winter’s still playing hide ‘n’ seek with us.  The experts called for rain yesterday, but no one got the memo.  Now we’re back to mostly sunny and springlike with one winter-like concession:  we’ll probably see WAVE on Sunday.  Of course that’s not an ‘expert’ opinion, it’s only mine – but I was right once before  …maybe.

STILL WINTER (AS IF)

Yes, according to calendars this is the middle week of winter, but around here it feels like spring already.  Oh we’ll get a bit more cool and cloudy weather sometime soon, and maybe even a hint of it in the coming week, but not much.  Officially, this is WAVE season, but until we see a south wind again there’ll be none of that on the horizon.  Thermal potential is still low at this point, though steadily rising with the arc of the sun…  Typically, by the middle of February our thermals begin to grow in frequency and size, and by mid-March you can count on soarable WX every single day through October!

SEE YOU SOON!

HAPPY FEBRUARY!

Let’s flush January down the old memory hole and try again, okay?  We’ve had a long run of achingly pleasant weather lately, light wind and balmy temps, that should continue in the coming week.  Countless ravens have been observed soaring – easy to see because none were going very high yet – but by Saturday thermals may be lofting as high as our snow covered mountaintops.  Won’t that be nice?

SEE YOU SOON!
