Awesome place to learn to skydive


Skydive Snohomish Rated 5 by: agaace on 2013-10-27

Pros: small, friendly community, students get personal attention, safety first, super scenic
Cons: weather can be unpredictable

I'm a student here, working towards my A license. I can't say enough positive things about this place!

- Super friendly people, everyone I meet is very helpful and just by chatting with people you get a ton of great advice, tips, and learn a ton about the sport. And make new friends, of course.

- Best instructors I could ask for. You're not an anonymous pile of money, they take the time to get to know you, your strengths and weaknesses. Let's say I'm not a natural skydiving talent, I've been quite a challenge to the instructors, and they've been super supportive and kept believing in me even when I secretly started thinking this sport was not for me. Never seen anyone so happy about my little successes. They are so passionate about the sport and care about you progressing, that in no time (that is, after you get over the initial fear of the open door that takes about 5-8 jumps) you share their passion with all your heart.

- Safety first. Everyone is professional, everyone is safety oriented, plenty of skydivers who've been in the sport for many years and who will give you all the advice on how you too can safely enjoy skydiving for years to come. Instructors who make you feel safe and confident (gear checking you 3 more times after you already did your own gear check, is one example).

- It's a really small DZ, small community and everyone knows each other. It just makes this place so much more friendly. A lot of experienced skydivers volunteer to coach the new kids on the block, just because they're so awesome.

The only thing they could improve is to have more weekend slots available, they tend to be on a super packed schedule in the summer, so you may not get to jump as much as you'd like to (at least as a student). May be a bit frustrating, but keep in mind every student wants to jump as much as possible, we all share the aircraft, the pilot's and the instructors time, and they simply try to accommodate everyone within their limited resources.

Now if you want to bitch about:

- the weather and that you needed to reschedule your jump X times.. seriously, blame your god or mother nature or whatever you believe in. The dropzone doesn't control the weather. You should be grateful that for the sake of your own butt's safety they keep you grounded (and don't just take your money and put your life at risk) when the weather doesn't cooperate. Trust me, it's better to be on the ground wishing you were in the sky, than being in the sky wishing you were on the ground.

- being a 'tandem factory'.. yeah those people need to make a living ya know, would you rather pay $100 per fun jump if they didn't do so many tandems?

- anything else.. just stop bitching already, come out to Snoho, and have a great time jumping with really fun people.

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

Was in Seattle for vacation over Christmas and New Years, only got to make it up there once but everyone was welcoming and friendly. Filled out paperwork, they grabbed an instructor to give me a briefing on the alternate landing area (seperate landing areas for different experience levels) and introduced me to another belly flyer, they even lent me a jumpsuit. The views were incredible and I was very happy to be there. Definitely will be going back!
