Note that Westjet has an RNP Route inbound to Kelowna and as they pass by Baldy/King Eddy they are in the decent to intercept the centre line inbound. This profile puts them above Baldy at approximately 7,400'. Paragliding west of Baldy towards Deep Lake, Kal Park and Middleton Mountain could put you in conflict with these flights, just be aware of their descent profile which can be seen on the bottom left of the animation below, heights are approximate and are probably lagging behind the aircrafts actual height. Fly with your computer/altimeter set to feet not meters, so you can avoid conflict and be aware of your separation. Even 1000' below a 737, wake turbulence, if encountered, would be fairly catastrophic for a paraglider.
