Why jump at Skydive the Wasatch? For two main reasons: Gorgeous views and an authentic community spirit. The ride to altitude skims the snow-capped all-season playground of the Wasatch Front, providing every skydive with a postcard backdrop for an incredible scenic skydive in Utah.
The DZ is Utah’s newest (and one of its smallest), founded as a community hub for local jumpers, so the tandem masters’ bedside manner is predictably personal.
Scenic flights of the majestic Utah mountains (that end with an adrenaline-pumping descent).
The municipal airport in Nephi, Utah (some of the closest skydiving to Salt Lake City – and right next to Provo).
Yes. Skydive the Wasatch was founded by a young, ex-military skydiver who wanted to provide his skydiving buddies a friendly place to jump. So the sense of family is palpable, for new and returning jumpers alike. Important note: since the DZ is small, rentals are in short supply, so sport skydivers need to bring their own equipment.
Getting a deal
Skydive the Wasatch runs occasional specials on its Facebook page. It does a brisk business in bulk tandem skydiving deals for local church groups and for the scores of university student associations in the Salt Lake and Provo areas.
