West southwest ridge action

Westerly down low going southerly higher up had the hawkduns working as a ridge, and southwest wave above. Cloud was a little low on the hawkduns.

Mt Bitterness

The best lift today was south and east of Omarama according to the forecast, so we went along the northern side of the Hawkdun range to the east. Weak thermals mostly. A little wave influence, and just enough wind on the top of the Saint Marys range to ridge for a bit.

Unstable windy spring day

Plenty of wave sign in the sky, but a bit unstable. A warm windy spring day.

Low again

Arriving at the Omarama Saddle ridge low again. It's always better to arrive above the level of the airstrip (that's it left of the road).
