Albuquerque Soaring Club, Moriarty, NM
Dates: July 8-12, 2013
Moriarty, New Mexico is a special place for glider pilots. Located in the heart of the Estancia Valley, 35 miles east of Albuquerque, it has fabulous and remarkably consistent soaring weather and wide-open air space.
Moriarty is located on a high plateau at around 6,000 ft MSL, which is bounded to the west by the Sandia and Manzano mountains, to the north by the Sangre de Cristos (the stepping stones to the Rockies of Colorado), to the east by the open expanses of Eastern New Mexico and to the south by the Carrizozo lava flow, the Sacramento Mountains, Capitan Mountain, and White Sands National Monument.
Moriarty boasts some of the finest year round soaring conditions in the United States, including 15 knot thermals to 22,000 ft, mountain wave to 34,000 ft, and orographic lift off the Manzano, Sandia, Ortiz, and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges. Many flights in excess of 250 miles are recorded each year.
