Fun flight up to Lassen Peak, deep into the northern Sierras. Mostly blue with variable winds. Some areas with good lift, some dead air and some very nasty large areas of sink. Was pretty weak off of tow, released at 2,000' AGL, lost over 500' before I found lift. As I went further west it got stronger and higher. After passing Gasner the air was pretty dead until by Chester. After passing Chester and going north up the southern foothills of Mt. Lassen, the lift really picked up and there were some cus over Lassen Peak. After turning around, the air was pretty good with a cu every 20 miles or so. The air the last 30-40 miles out of Sierraville was terribly sinky and I just could not shake it off. I ended up making Sierraville low and had to make a save from 800' AGL which ended up being a 4 knotter up to 12,000' for an easy final glide home.
