I have done a LOT of slope soaring. Weight is often not a big issue for slope gliders. All depends on the height of the hill and how strong the wind might be. I have seen slope gliders made out of solid maple wood.

I have taped a 16" spike onto my ZAGI foam slope wing for ballast.

EPP foam is popular for slope gliders as it is almost indestructible.

So, tell us about your hill, the height of the hill and typical wind speed.
