hey jan congratulations on the flight , very beautiful looks like your just north of us here in western montana . i think your up by kamloops spent some time there when i was younger. looks a bit turbulant glad you were keeping a good alt and distance from thous peaks. looks like you had some options for lz most of the way. flying in these western rockys is a bit more challenging than most realize.when i tell people that i fly in fairly calm air here its not because i cant fly more turbulance its more that flying these mountains here require it. very diferent than flying turbulance in more laminar air.another thing we have to watch out for is cloud suck and ridge rotors yes they do scare the pucker factor right out of me.being an x hang glider pilot gave me a very healthy respect for lee side and ridge rotors. anyway looks like you did a great job and i enjoyed your video.
Hi Jannadem, would love to view the video as my daughter worked at Sun Peaks for 3 seasons before returning home to Aus. Do you have a highlights package shorter than the 17 minutes that this video runs as I don't have the bandwidth or the download left to view this version. I may have another birthday before it loads. Rgds
