Which drop zone do you recommend in New Mexico? I only know of two there, Skydive El Paso and Skydive New Mexico. I'm going to be in Santa Fe for the next month. Are they jumping this time of year? Where should I go?
I recently moved from New Mexico, and I highly recommend Skydive New Mexico. For one thing, it's about 3 hours closer to you than El Paso.
El Paso is a nice DZ, don't get me wrong, I like it a lot. But you will never find a nicer group of people than those who jump at SNM. They jump year round, and SNM has one of the nicest 182s in the country, hands down.
Skydive El Paso is approximately 4.5 hours from Santa Fe. They're open Weekends only. Its $15 to 10,000 feet. They have 2 suped up C 182 widebodies. (1 for up jumpers 1 for students) I'll be in Santa Fe this on wed thur fri of this week if you need some more info. Also a small group of jumpers camp out at the DZ on Friday and Sat night. (showers are available in the hangar). PM me if you need any other info. Blues Jim
