Are you still flying in the winter? This is a question asked every year

I still hike up Mt. Swansea and do the odd flight through the winter, but most of the time we head up to Panorama www.panoramaresort.com and fly at the ski area.
We love skiing and flying there, and the resort is very generous to us pilots, and guests seem to really enjoy watching us soaring the skies.

Christmas day, Penny and I flew, dressed as Santa and an elf. We landed at the day-lodge with a good crowd of kids and adults waiting for our arrival. (click here for more pictures)

Over the Christmas holidays, we had beautiful weather and very good flying conditions, and were even able ridge soar.
Our New Years flights were fantastic and I really enjoyed the footage and the picture Penny took when I flew with the Canadian flag.

 

 

We have had several more flights since new years, with a lot of other local and out of town flying buddies joining us. If you don’t have any plans over the next couple of weeks, consider coming for a ski & fly at Panorama. More information is at my website at http://www.flyingmax.com/area/panorama/ 

If you have not heard yet, the annual Panorama Easter Flying Meet, which is usually held the Easter long weekend, has been moved  to March 28, 29, 30th. Because Easter is so late this year, we had to re-schedule it. For those of you who have never come to the event, you don’t want to miss it, and for the those of you who have, I know we’ll see you back again.
