The coastal mountains of southwestern Canada boast some of the best flying on the continent, with soaring sites to suit all pilot skill levels and styles. Our two most popular and consistently flyable sites are Mount Woodside and Lower Bridal Falls. Woodside is flyable year-round, and is suitable for hang gliders and paragliders. Bridal Falls lower launch is suitable only for paraglider pilots. Woodside's WSW facing launch provides excellent morning and afternoon soaring conditions in the spring and summer while the steep WNW facing Bridal Falls ridge provides excellent afternoon flying and great cross country flights. Cross country flights in the springtime from Mount Woodside to Bridal Falls and back have become the norm. The Fraser Valley is quite wide which reduces the severity of valley winds creating a generally low stress flying environment.

We are based in British Columbia, Canada, close to well known flying area of Woodside Mt. There are several other sites around within half-hour driving distance (more info at http://www.westcoastsoaringclub.com/sites/). Pilots' Loft is a B&B mainly for paraglider pilots and outdoor adventurers.
Individual pilots and small groups have many options here from just staying at our place near Woodside Mt. to VIP tours through various local and remote sites.
A lot of other activities are possible, like hiking, fishing, biking, swimming, visiting hot springs, golfing or just relaxing.
We had been paragliding at Woodside mountain for years and just recently built our cozy “nest” with two guest rooms at the upper floor. We named it “Pilots’ Loft” because we hope to see many paraglider pilots staying here among our guests. The whole upper floor of the home is available for you, as well as a common area at the main floor and full access to both the front and back yards. Amenities: continental breakfast, complimentary coffee and tea, Wi-Fi, TV, AC, laundry, essentials.
