2016 T2C 144 for sale- EVERY OPTION – $8400

2016 T2C with less than 50 hours on it.  LOADED!  As in, every single bad-ass option there is!  I named this one “The Space Ship” because it climbs like crazy, floats to the top of the stack, and on glide it just goes and goes and goes… it’s honestly like cheating! Details: ODL04 Technora top…




Scarlett the ROCK CLIMBER

I am *SO* super proud of my brave little girl, who asked to go rock climbing completely unsolicited. Uncle Justin was a huge help in making it happen- thank you!! She climbed way better than I could have imagined any 3 year old climbing, and went all the way to the very top and tagged…



Comparing the 2016 T2C with my 2011

This season I sold my 2011 T2C for a brand new all-options 2016 T2C. It’s a very different machine! Compared to my 2011, my 2016 is noticeably lighter weight.  ODL04 sail cloth and the carbon front leading edges are expensive, but they do reduce the weight a tad. In flight, I would say that my…



This is How We Float

I’m as guilty as anyone; We get caught up in trying to get higher, go farther, and faster.  We’re scrutinizing over reducing drag, and increasing glide performance.  Perpetually studying where to find and how to maximize lifting air. And all of that is fun.  Damn fun!  But it’s not all there is to flying, and…



The youngest person to fly from Telluride, Colorado.  September 16, 1988. Launch is over 12,000 ft above sea level, and we climbed to almost 17,000 ft- the landing zone is around 9,000 ft.  Check out the tandem on a double surface glider (Wills Wing Sport I think?).  Dad still nailed the landing, of course. #respect…



Deer Valley Pow Turns

A fun Throwback Thursday video: My first year working at Deer Valley, I was a videographer (NOT! a ski instructor). Best compliment/insult I got that year?  “You ski like a really good PATROLLER.  It’s all wrong, but you look great doing it” After becoming an instructor and pursuing certification… that comment is all the more…



I got Paco’d… and it was awesome!

Yesterday I met up with our local paragliding ambassador and all-around cool dude, Paco, for a tandem flight.  He had a demo wing on loan, and was looking for some baggage to fly with… er… I mean, a willing pilot-passenger.  There’s a pretty short list of people I will fly with as the passenger… but…



TBT: Backcountry Pow Turns

Short video Des took of me, from the Alta parking lot if I remember correctly… skiing the ridge (backcountry) that faces West at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon.  Circa 2008 or so? There’s something really special about hiking (touring) up a rugged mountain line, especially doing it alone.  Yea yea, I know touring alone…



Wills Wing T2C “Sundancer” for sale – $4800

This has been, hands down, the best glider I have ever owned or flown!  I’ve never had so many amazing, memorable experiences in such a short span of time as I have since getting this wing.  It’s been a wild ride! But, like all good rides, they must come to an end.  In addition to…



Why does USHPA need insurance, anyway?!

In a recent conversation with another pilot, he was stating that none of the land owners where he flies have asked or care about insurance.  This isn’t the case everywhere, obviously… but this pilot’s experience isn’t entirely unique, either.  There’s a number of sites that don’t have insurance, and are more-or-less unregulated… I’d like to…
