2017 Fall Wave Season

Come Fly the Sugarbush Wave!!

Sugarbush Soaring invites you to the 2017 Wave Season to enjoy great soaring and camaraderie with your fellow glider pilots from the northeast and Canada on September 30 though October 21, 2017.

Soaring in the mountain wave is incredible.  Prevailing west winds and the surrounding Green Mountains means that wave lift is prevalent in the fall.  During a typical wave week, you can expect several flights to altitudes above 10,000 feet.  The views from that height are unforgettable!!

Here are two articles about the famous Sugarbush wave to whet your appetite:

When the folks from York Soaring (near Toronto) visited in October 2008, they made this video.  It’s well made and worth a look!
