Default Winter Soaring Options?

I have been waiting for a new glider for quite some time. It has finally arrived and the midwest soaring season is coming to a close. What are my options for winter soaring. I have checked out Seminole Lakes but I am having trouble finding a hangar to store my glider. Any ideas would be helpful.

Come fly some ridge at Blairstown, NJ! Yards Creek Soaring is the operator.

Barry, did you finally get the "M"?
Cool.

I don't care how good Condor is, it's still an inflateable woman compared to
a new glider.

There's plenty of hangar space at Moriarty - one beam in the "world-famous"
carousel hangar that you could probably get at a reasonable monthly rate.
No hangar rash there and wave season is just starting to wake up.

How is the Moriarty wave in most years say Dec 15-20? I may be in the area then.

It's generally good but, of course, I can't promise anything.

I show 4 wave flights last December with release altitudes ranging from 8.1
to 9.2K (1,900 - 2,100 ft AGL). Three of the flights were above 17,000' MSL
and one to a bit above 15,000' MSL. All were achieved by thermalling up
into the wave. You could look on OLC or Skylines. Dates were 12/1, 12/7,
12/8, and 12/27. Other days I was towing.

Will you be bringing your glider or renting from Sundance Aviation? They
have 2 Grob 103s and an LS-4 for rent.
