The SSB's YouTube channel is a resource for learning about soaring. Many questions about our operations at Boulder airport are answered. These include presentations made by SSB's highly accomplished racing pilots and instructors.
The best way to find out more about the SSB is to visit the glider side (north) of the Boulder airport located on Independence Road. We usually operate every weekend and some weekday afternoons, weather permitting. By all means, feel free to stop by the field on any active day and introduce yourself.
You can join the SSB at the airport. If there is flight activity an approved SSB Instructor or SSB board member its typically present and they can take your New Membership Application.
When you join the club you should receive a complete new member package outlining the SSB procedures along with documentation for each sailplane in the fleet.
