I came from Canada and did a few jumps here. Nice place, good people, professional, and polite. I really had no complaints until I landed in the designated field for B License <200 jumps area. It is a busy airfield so I can understand the need for it; however, if you are looking to turn quick loads it is very difficult as you have to wait for the bus to come. If there are loads behind you, you may also have to wait for them as well. Make sure you have a C license if you plan on making lots of loads.

UPDATED Jun 18, 2015

- tandem factory (130+ tandems/day out of a single caravan)
- strictly no wingsuits or tracking jumps
- strict canopy size policy (and it's ridiculous, e.g. if you don't do at least 50 jumps per year you cannot fly anything smaller than 150 sq ft, even at WL 0.8, no matter your experience level)
- smallish LZ, C & D license only DZ (after October 2015)
- no AFF
- DZO makes up his own illogical rules (like different "safety" requirements for different people)
- full of drama and politics (though if you're just a visiting jumper, you likely will not be exposed to it much, and the DZO may even seem like a nice person)

Not so good in the end


Skydive Snohomish Rated 2 by: luvin2bfree on 2013-07-19

Pros: nice and friendly, pay for fun jumps at end of day instead of guessing how many.
Cons: Dont let all their staff know the important beginning things.

Warning to all CSPA members. Apparently the new code is you can't jump in the US without at least a temp USPA license ($65). ..This is what Slohomish explained after we went through 6 page double sided waiver, someone going through my container with a fine tooth comb (surprised he didn't make me unpack it). Said my rigger who packs my reserve has to be FAA certified (American), waiting around for a load to be put together...total 2 hours to jump one jump and not get to... We told every person we came across we were Canadian. I was gearing up and dirt diving when I was finally pulled aside and explained. That you have to have a temp USPA license ($65). This should have been mentioned by the girls at the front desk as soon as we mentioned we were from Canada... We could have jumped in Abbotsford instead...we did not get to jump due to time limitations after waiting for 2 hours....

I am half way done getting my A license and it is great. Instructors are great, all the student gear is pretty new and I like the overall vice of the place.

As a relatively experienced jumper that has jumped at numerous DZ's throughout the continental US this has been one of the best jump experiences I have ever had.

The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming! Tyson does a great job of balancing a business while keeping it laid back and fun. The manifest and office girls do an amazing job of making you feel welcome and making sure you have anything you need.

I marked middle of the road for aircraft... They have two really nice Caravan's, but can only take up 10-12 at a time. On the flip side, there is plenty of room to stretch out on the way to altitude.

As far as landing area, I did not land at the alternate landing area. But, the main landing area is nice and lush green grass. Just watch out for airport traffic, and it's a little tight. This is why they need two landing areas, and I think it is a great idea!

As far as load organizing and dz regulars; I showed up knowing no one, and can't wait to go back! Dave helped me out by showing me around, and his wonderful wife Deb got me in my first ever RW "competition". It was a blast, and can't believe at 1,300+ jumps I hadn't done one before. Luckily Linny and Christy were coaching me along and showing me the ropes of RW.

Scenery... You WILL not find a more beautiful scenic DZ in the country! At altitude we could easily see Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, and Mt. St. Helens. Not to mention the rest of the Cascades and Snohomish river below. Absolutely breathtaking!

Overall this is an awesome medium size dz, with most the perks of a big dz, and all the perks of a small dz!

I can't wait to get back there and jump!!!

Blue Skies,
Johnny Gunn
