Gasworks Park sees some action. That's home to the Liftworx Swyft and Red Herring.

Discovery park is the only "real" slope in Seattle and has some great lift but also has rotors and an unrecoverable slope. Tricitires has 3 world class slopes (Eagle Butte, Chandler Butte and Kiona Butte. There are good hills at Lk Chelan as well as Hood River gorge.

I'll try gasworks tomorrow. All I got to do is just toss the Zagi and Multiplex Fox into my backpack and ride down the Berke-Gilmen I will get back on how it was.

If you are able to get as far north as everett you might be able to fly harborview park, which requires north to northwest wind. My guess is tomorrow will be a terrible day for gasworks, because the wind is currently coming from the north, exactly in the wrong direction. Check your PMs i dropped you a little message that might save you a trip.

I must agree with you, gasworks requires the right size/type of plane, and the right conditions. Check your PMs i dropped you a little message

Cattle Point, San Juan Island is another WA flying spot. Best slope in the Puget Sound area from what other pilots have told me. Flyable in W, SE, S, and SW with any size model. Flew my 4.5 meter ASH-26 there last night.
