Any good slope... taller than 50 feet above the surrounding terrain on the windward side should provide hours of flight.
Frequent crashes?
Most turns should be done into the wind, away from the slope. Turning towards the slope brings the plane out of the lift quickly.
Gentle Ladys are good slopers.

Note the turn toward the slope...
