The Jungle 

Overview

The Jungle is located just south of Walker in the bowl right before Coyote. Depending on the time of year it can get pretty over grown with hemlock and thistles, hence the name.  The Jungle works best in moderate to strong wind with a southerly component.

Because it’s in a bowl, the Jungle is fairly forgiving. In strong wind the best strategy is to lay the wing out halfway down the hill and walk towards it as the wing is inflated. When you have the wing overhead, it’s also a good idea to back slowly up the hill until you’re standing near the trail. This should give you plenty of room to clear the small mound at the bottom of launch.
