Mount 7

891 Crandall Road

The magnificent Mount 7 is a world-class venue for paragliding and hang gliding. Its launch site is a recreation venue for picnics and sight-seeing and there isn’t a better location anywhere to get a mind-blowing view of the Columbia Valley, spread out below. In winter, Mount 7 is a favorite spot for snowmobiling and skiing; in the summer months, the mountain is a favorite spot for hang-gliding and paragliding, cycling and hiking.

For more than 20 years, the Mount 7 flying site has been a popular launchpad for pilots from across North America and around the world, the annual WilliXC Challenge, being the major event.

If you are a seasoned pilot, Mount 7 offers a place to gain mountain and Cross-country flying experience and work at achieving your personal best.

If you have never flown before but want to have the thrill of a lifetime, you can take a tandem flight over the area.
