How Inclement Weather Impacts Your Jump
Skydiving is an activity that is largely subject to the temperament of Mother Nature. Therefore, it's no surprise that skydives rarely happen on schedule. Changes in atmospheric conditions occur rapidly and are unpredictable. Increased wind speed, cloud cover, and low visibility due to fog are to be expected and can often lead to delays. On occasion, these delays can last several hours.
What You Can Expect with Inclimate Weather
In an effort to reduce the degree of inconvenience to yourself on the day of your jump, you should set aside the majority of your day to be spent at the skydiving center. Despite the fact that we would argue that this is a wonderful opportunity for you to take advantage of the unique amenities exclusive to our drop zone, we understand that you may wish to spread your figurative wings and take in the surrounding community and area. We’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of places to visit, should you be in search of fine dining, various outdoor activities, or shopping to indulge in while you pass the time.
