Hope BC offers some of the best conditions for gliding (also known as soaring) in the province. When the westerly winds from the Fraser Valley hit the local mountains, and in particular Mount Hope, they create strong upward columns of air which can keep a glider in flight for up to 6 or 7 hours. This is why the Vancouver Soaring Association (VSA) has made Hope Airpark their home-base for gliding/soaring. The VSA also offers gliding lessons.
