Mount Princeton

Salida, Colorado – 38.750286, -106.213500, 3687 meters

Great local article about the 1994 USA Nationals held here.

This is a HIGH altitude launch site! Launch is at over 12,000 ft. and the landing area is at 8,000 ft. The LZ is a 7 to 1 glide from launch but there are bailouts.

Big site. Big Air. These mountains make their own weather.

Dirt road to the top is 4×4 and you will need a driver as it is a long trip up and back down.

All pilots should fly Princeton at least once so you can tell your grandkids about it later.
