Best place for visitor to jump in Colorado? Can't Post

I'm visiting Colorado for a week, staying in the north near ft Collins. What are the good dropzones to jump at here? I have about 120 jumps, unfortunately I didn't bring my gear so I'll need to rent. Ideally I'm looking for somewhere with a good vibe, gear in good condition, a daily rental rate, and friendly people. Ideas?

Currently their are only 2 dropzones open now that are close to you. The first is Mile Hi in longmont about an hour south they have good gear great planes and pilots and good friendly jumpers they don't have daily gear rental it is $25 per jump. the other would be boulder which is under new management and i don't really know much about it but they are a smaller cesna DZ about 1.15 hours south. If you are around for until april 28th skydive empire in fort morgan is opening that day.

Appreciate the info, thanks! I might check out mile-hi, unfortunately I forgot my logbook and just have my proficiency cards (I have an APF and a CSPA card), but Isuppose I could give my home dz as a reference. No doubt I will be back again though with my own rig! I have heard it is quite hard to keep your main clean around here.. sandy perhaps?

It's not really that hard. The land is just very arid so their is a lot of dirt that can get everywhere. Also if your dz could fax over a sheet with your last jump that could work.

Well, I didn't get to jump, my week was packed, but I'll probably be back in the summer and check it out with my own gear.
