Frequently Asked Questions

Will the weather affect whether I am able to jump or not?

  • Yes, the weather is important, few clouds and light winds are ideal for skydiving but are not always the case. We do not skydive in strong, gusting winds, low solid cloud ceiling, and/or rain.
  • If we need to cancel due to the weather you can reschedule for another time and date or you will get a full refund.
  • The weather can change so quickly here in the mountains and we cannot confidently rely on the weather forecast. Our qualified staff will make a weather evaluation on the day of the jump.
  • If you are concerned about the weather forecast for the day of your booking and wish to reschedule or get a refund, our normal cancellation policy applies.
