Tiger Mountain Update

Last updated May 7th, 2020

Hi folks,

King County Parks is set to reopen the Poo Poo Point / Tiger Mountain parking lot and trailhead area starting Friday, May 8th. This is great news, and I'm sure many of you are excited to get back to flying!


Given these unprecedented times, we are asking our community to take extra precautions over the next few months to help ensure that we are staying safe and protecting the site. In addition to continuing to follow state social distancing guidelines, we are also asking pilots to refrain from flying in the following conditions at Tiger:
1. East winds
2. Wind speeds above 16 MPH at launch or landing
3. Cloud base below 1900ft
Please check the weather before making plans. http://wxtofly.net/v2/windgrams.html#TigerHikeLookout and https://www.windy.com/47.499/-122.009?47.488,-122.010,14 are both great resources.
We appreciate everyone's support in observing the state social distancing guidelines over the past few months. We recognize that this has been a challenging time, and we appreciate all that the community has done to help protect our site and keep people safe. We're blessed to be part of the Issaquah community and to be able to practice our beautiful sport here. Given the current global events surrounding COVID-19, we encourage everyone to do their part and fully support this effort.
As always, please continue to exercise good judgment and help out your fellow club members and others in the community. We are working on organizing a virtual club meeting within the coming weeks and look forward to reconnecting with you all.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the board at flybod@nwparagliding.com or reach out to me directly.

The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who... looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space... on the infinite highway of the air.
