Rick L: Cliffside was awesome today with extremely smooth thermals mixed with plenty of ridge lifts kind of day. I launched at 1:30 and landed at 4:30pm. Thermals went up to 2,200 ft AGL. Six hangs(Tim B, Tim C, Tim B, new H2 Tom, Mark R, Rob A, Rick L) + approx 30 + PGs all had unlimited soaring

Mark G. Forbes: We had great support from Alas Del Hombre, right down by the waterfront. We rented a house just up the hill from the shop for a week and it was great. They provided a shuttle van and a driver for our week there, and it was remarkably inexpensive shared out among our group.
jeffrey wishnie: Location: I strongly recommend being in town walking distance from the main plaza. It’s fun, pretty, lots of food, easy walk to the LZ, or to grab a cab to launch. Guiding: Andy Macrea of Bozeman paragliding offers inexpensive on-site guiding (and he’ll help you find a place to stay, get from
Dan Hutch: Any suggestions on who to contact for guiding, orientation, etc. before heading to the area? Thanks, Dan

steed: The LZ is at lower right, with the open-air market near "Centro". That distance is walkable but you won't want to go much further. We've rented some very nice houses up the hill near the middle of the image, but that is a lot of vertical. Enjoy your trip! Mike ----------------------------
Michael Cook: So is there anywhere in particular that's better or worse to stay location wise? Looking at some lodging options and don't know the layout for flying.... Any suggestions welcome!
