Lake Placid Wave Camp (New York)
September & October
Lake Placid offers some of the most interesting flying in the northeast. Mountain wave of course, but also local mountain thermal flying, and ridge flying as well.
Three Canadian clubs make the annual pilgrimage Lake Placid each year to enjoy its fabulous wave flying. Pilots typically come from Montreal Soaring Council, Gatineau Gliding Club and Rideau Valley Soaring. The camp is open to anyone interested in participating. Bring your own glider or fly one of the many club gliders that are brought down for the duration of the camp.
