Gallatin Peak is a great site for Northerly winds. It is used very little and mainly by locals. Spectacular views of Eagle Lake can be had at launch and landing is on Gallatin Beach at the Day Use Area. Daytime XC's to Susanville have been done by locals and evening glass offs to 12000' have been known to happen.
