Turnagain Pass - Magnum

Sun, 08/28/2011

Six of us loaded up in Matt's truck and headed to Turnagain Pass on an unusually sunny day in late August. After about two hours of bushwacking through the tall wet slippery grass we were at launch waiting for the thermals to start cycling in. The slopes behind us and across the valley looked active but very little was going on at Magnum. We waited until 2:30 or so and started sending off wind dummies. By 4:00 things were looking good and we all launched into light but workable thermals. We all had good flights with the longest about 45 minutes but the climbs were not particularly high.
