Soaring Crested Butte


Look high above Crested Butte and you just may see a hang glider or paraglider soaring the thermals above. Qualified pilots can take off from this unique launch site at nearly 12,000′. Another launch site is located near Blue Mesa Reservoir near Gunnison, and many first timers get a taste of soaring at the football field at WSCU. For more information about these sports, you may contact local enthusiast Scott Yost at (970) 596-7658.
