Light wind high alpine paradise.
Summit County Hike n Fly
High altitude, thin air, big mountains! Use caution flying here and only go when conditions are excellent.
Most commonly flown in the evening around sunset. XC flights do happen, with Keystone being the most common destination.
You can get very high and still not be all that far above terrain, so fly conservatively and keep your LZ options open at all times.
12,850' above sea level, on top of the continental divide! Only consider launching Loveland when upper winds are very low. Launchable winds from S to W to NW and is best with light winds under 10mph.
Launch is just a short walk from the parking at the pass itself. The entire area is above treeline and you can launch anywhere that is clear of rocks - lots of options.
