Typically lots of PG traffic, as it appears heavily used by PG schools, once you get up though, it won't be an issue. Good thermals, from up high you have a good view of the Alps, Schwyz, Zürich, Lucerne.

Paved road to the top, transport gliders by car.


Mountain ridge overlooking a lake, three lakes nearby, Alps are behind takeoff, the mountain "Rigi" to the left of takeoff.

The primary LZ is unevenly sloped - sloping down from east to west. Its longest axis is North-South, but this is likely 90 degrees crosswind. Given that landing into the wind will likely have you going downhill along the short axis of the LZ, you should probably do a cross wind landing.

The takeoff is a nice grassy slope, but the slope does get a little shallower at a certain point, so watch out for that.
