    Skydive Zion

    My experience at Skydive Zion was awesome. In 4 half days I went from my first tandem through AFF level VII and on the 5th day was jumping solo. Easy to schedule instruction by e-mail or telephone and they were very accomodating of my schedule. When I wasn't jumping, I was hiking the canyons in and around Zion NP. Equipment, from plane to rigs to video instruction and taping, was clean, safe and in good repair. Staff was friendly and scenery around Hurricane, beautiful from 11,000 ft. Although I was overwhelmed by the rush sitting in the open door on my first tandem, I felt safe because of the preceding instruction and the reassuring nature of my instructor, Rick. My only regret is I wish there was an established, experienced jumper program. This is really a fun place to jump. Final analysis, this is a great place to make a single tandem jump on vacation or get your initial instruction.
