Thermic Landing Zone!

Although this happened at Andy Jackson Airpark, it applies equally to Sylmar.
If the air is going up it may be safer to ride with it until it stops lifting off before attempting to land.
Of course, pattern traffic can become an issue when more than one glider is coming in.
Just an FYI
