The annual Willi Muller XC Challenge is returning to Golden in the next few weeks. The 2014 edition of the hang gliding and paragliding event takes place from July 26th through to August 3rd.

Basecamp for the meet is the Golden Eco-Adventure Ranch, with flight launches taking place at majestic Mount 7.

While “The Willi”, as it is known among regular attendees, is a competition, organizers want to make it clear that the event is about fun and is open to pilots of all levels. The Willi is a great opportunity for development and improvement, to meet other pilots and have a lot of fun.

The adventure-sport meet was first established back in 1997 and regularly draws attendees from across Canada, the US and even farther afield.

Wherever you’re travelling from, we look forward to welcoming you to our Golden location and we are in an ideal spot for pilots attending the meet – our Prestige Inn Golden location is located at 1049 Trans Canada Hwy.
