I've never tried gliders in any sim. I noticed that it is a 45 nm distance between the two airports with a 10,000 foot ridge in between and you are flying into the prevailing winds. Did you make it? What sim are you using?

And an XCSoar barograph of it.


Haven't read the manual, so I don't know what the blue lines are.
