Curtis Canyon serves as our local “training hill” and afternoon ridge-soaring site, and works best in W-NW flow. It features multiple spots good for launching and kiting that are easily accessible by car or quick hike. Mind the lower LZ: its gentle slope means it can be easily over-flown if you aren’t paying attention! Locals love Curtis for its accessibility, sunset views of the Teton Range, and as a destination for the occasional mini-XC flight from Snow King in town. This area is closed seasonally from Dec. 1st- April 30th for critical wildlife habitat.
Drive time from Downtown Jackson: 25 min.
Hiking time to upper bench launch: 8 min.
