Video Tour of Kamloops area Flying Sites and Pilots

Postby siteguide » Wed Jan 30, 2013 10:22 am

A video tour of our Kamloops Region flying sites. Enjoy! :thumbs:

This list includes: Deadman's, El Nido, Speargrass, Sun Peaks, Punch Bowl, Toilet Bowl, The Pimple and Cornwall.
- I hope our contributors know how much we appreciate them for this!

Our Kamloops Valley Racers country is said by most if not all who know the area to be by far and away our best XC area in Canada. Its pretty hard to (and few do) argue with that opinion!
Lots of sites covering all wind directions, all fairly close together... and the region features lots of variety.

Plan your XC routes with Tom Paynes excellent XC Planner.

One of many "Secret Sites" in the Kamloops region.
To fly on reservation lands you must be accompanied by a designated local pilot.
- See the Site Guide for more information.
