It is a great time of year to fly, temperatures are warm and the sun can be strong with the possibility of good thermic conditions allowing us to climb up above the take off. The adventure is accentuated by the ample snow remaining at take off. During early June, we often have crytsal clear blue skies in the morning and showery or stormy weather in the afternoons, so flying is more reliable in the mornings.
