King Mountain Hang Glider Championship

E-mail Print PDF

From July 14th through July 19th, 2008 you can watch some of the worlds best hang glider in action at the King Mountain Hang Glider Championship. The best part of this news is that you'll only have to travel about 165 miles from Mountain Home, Idaho to watch this event.

Mountain Home to Moore Idaho Hang Gliding

At the south end of the Lost River Range sits a southwest facing mountain. The height, orientation of the mountain and the wind and thermal conditions make this area one of the best places to hang glide. And you can watch a host of hang gliders launch off of King Mountain in their quest to grab the title "Champion Hang Glider".

If you have a free day between Monday July 14th and Saturday July 19th, think about heading to Moore, Idaho to watch a sporting event most people have never seen. Just think, when these pilots step off the launch pad, the next time they set foot back on ground could be in places like Salmon, Idaho or Dillon, Montana. And if the conditions are correct, they could easily fly over 115 miles on the thermals and updrafts of Idaho.
