Vermont's Mad River Valley is known for one of the most beautiful places to experience soaring on a glider. 

Sugarbush Soaring, the host of the 2022 Glider Fest, offers flight instruction, scenic rides, introductory flights, and aero tows.   

"The Warren Sugarbush airport (0B7) is one of the premier soaring locations in the US. On any given day you could experience one of the three forms of soaring lift — thermal, ridge or the famous Sugarbush Wave (or in some cases, all three!). The topography of our valley provides for a fun and unique soaring environment for pilots of all levels," according to the airport's website.  

The airport is open for rides and lessons 6 days a week (closed on Thursdays),has a diverse fleet of glider and celebrated youth programs. 

The Glider Fest will feature glider rides, tours, RC plane demos, hot air balloon, food, music and much more. Bring the entire family. Rain date is September 4.
