Team training tunnel and sky Can't Post

I am currently looking for a place to do freefly team training this July (east coast usa). We need a fast tunnel (to do randoms) and a nearby efficient DZ where we can do 12 jumps a day with nice stable weather. Where should we go?

Have been looking into Skyventure New Hampsire + Pepperell Skydiving Centre and Skyventure Colorado + Mile High. Off cours also ParacleteXP + Reaford.

Where would you go and why?

As much as I love Paraclete and flying in it, I wouldn't recommend it in this situation. It is the most expensive tunnel because you're paying for the size. Great tunnel if you're planning to do 8 way belly or something and split up the price, but all that money for a two way? CO and NH are a bit smaller and a bit cheaper which will be a lot easier for just two freeflyers who don't need the extra space. Over the course of your training year you'll probably save hundreds and hundreds of dollars by training at CO or NH.

If you're willing to go to Colorado, you might want to consider going to San Fran. Fly in the iFly tunnel and make $13 jumps at Lodi...
