Last Saturday, Bradley Baum soared a couple hundred miles to Boulder City, NV, and Peter Kovari and Carl Sommers landed thirty miles short of that, at Jean. Then Sunday, Mike Koerner made his first cross-country flight of the season, but we haven’t heard yet how it went. Who knows, he may still be up there running further downwind…

Recently we’ve lamented how below average our conditions at Crystal have been this spring. Is it time to take it all back? We’ve now seen nearly two weeks of essentially perfect thermal soaring every single day — kinda like the old normal. The coming period? Maybe not as consistent, but blustery and frigid no more! Look for light winds and afternoon temps between eighty and ninety into the foreseeable future.
