The folks at RC Soaring Digest have made available some vintage issues of the famous Slope Soaring News, a small magazine dedicated to slope soaring published in the late 1980's.
The issues up are in high rez PDF format, and you can download them from the links above. They are worth a read, these early slope pioneers were inventing everything we know and fly today.
Some names you will know from today, others forgotten. The Slope Soaring News is a true archive of slope history and technology.
What a difference 20 years makes in soaring. A must read.
