Despite the huge amount of snow this past winter, the Lookout Launch on Mt. 7 was completely vehicle accessible on May 20th this year. Just a week prior, the road was blocked with snow at the 11km mark. Having gone up the mountain on the evening of May 20th with the intent to fly out of the 9k launch, I was surprised to find that the road was in excellent shape right to the Lookout.
That’s a wrap on the 2017 hang gliding and paragliding season in Golden BC.
Mt.7 Lookout launch has been accessible by vehicle for about a week now. The 2017 hang gliding and paragliding season in Golden, BC is officially open.
Let’s Go Flying!
Peter Bowle-Evans Drive (the access road to The Lookout on Mount 7) is open. The launch is accessible by vehicle and flying can commence as soon as the “Maysoons” subside. So far the May 21st long weekend has been it’s usual cold, damp and cloudy self.
