Jumped here about 10-15 times as a fun jumper, and is always a very pleasant experience. The members on staff are very respectful and will help you with any issues that might come up. I will definitely be coming back!

Paul and Denise were wonderful hosts, Tom was exceptionally knowledgeable, and local jumpers were quick to accept a visitor. As I pursue jumping in all 50 states, Sky Down was a great place to jump in Idaho. I was able to get my snow wings as well as Idaho wings from Sky Down at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this outfit and will surely return!

I was in Caldwell for a class reunion. The weekend was a little slow, not a lot of people, but I enjoyed my time with Paul (DZO) and everyone. They have a 402 which was great to jump from and we (they) organized a cross-country jump which was a blast. Totally randomly, the exit spot was over the house I lived in when I was in high school. I don't get over there often, but when I do, I will have my rig and stop and jump again.

I was the tandem instructor on the jump below. I don't now how much closer I can get on a face when doing a handcam. When leaving the plane at 10k and pulling at 5 your only going to get about 30 seconds. As for student gear we do have 25 rigs and 15 different types of canopies and as for a fit it wasn't designed specifically for her body. As for the pricing she didn't go through us, she WENT THROUGH SKYRIDE!!!

My Dh's tandem was all of 30 seconds of freefall, and the Tandem master spiralled all the way down not giving him any time to enjoy the experience.
My jump was with gear that fit very poorly, they only had one set of goggles that was not tore up, and I sat there and watched there packer pack up a tandem rig totally incorrect! It was after I brought it to the attention of another guy whom worked there that he went and corrected the packer!
I also had video footage taken as a keep sake for both of our jumps....we had to call numerous times to get my Dh's video which cost us $100!!! The footage was awfull, they barely got up to where you could see his face, and it was blury.
I have yet to recieve my video and it has been over a month!
Over all this was a poor experience, with people at the end of the day who really did care about their customers.
