Overview

Lake McClure offers wave, convergence, thermal and ridge soaring 320 days of the year.

History

I don't know the whole history of the site but I know I fly everyday with the only guys who ever flew across the whole Sierra Mountain range (true giants in my opinion.)

Geography/Meteorology

Multiple mountains to fly but rice mountain is where the launch is located.

Clubs/Owners/Manager

The site club is the Mother Lode Sky Riders. The launch is private property and the LZs are parkland. Dan Venamen is the club president.

Site Records
