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.

WOW, So I get sent to boise for work. first thing I do is get online to find a dz. I read the reviews, make a few calls, end up talkin to paul at skydown for a few minutes. I tell him whats going on with work. ( strange hourd etc. ) He says " come se us we'll get you in the air" so I ome to boise. call him drive out the first day to get waivered up. He offered to call some guys to ge a load together for me. again WOW!. I declined , was a long day anyway. the next day again I call late in the day....6:30 or so but just get an answeing machine, didn't leave a message figuring everyone had jumped. well about 5 or so minutes later my phone rings ...its paul! he says "were gonna make a coupla more jumps come on out" I told him not to wait since my rig was at the hotel . He tells me to go get it & come out. so I did. met some great guys. ( randy,rocky,& bob) all who had waited for me to get on the sunset load. what a great skydive !!! nothing overly spectacular (unless you like beautiful scenery & clean crisp air). THANX again Paul & Denise. ya wanna a great skydive experience in Idaho...visit skydown. I will again....probably tomorrow ;)
