Roaring Fork Skydivers allows thrill seekers to see the Rocky Mountains from an entirely new perspective: from the top-down. Flights leave from the Glenwood Springs Municipal Airport, ferrying licensed solo jumpers and first-time thrill seekers alike up into the sky's blue expanse.
Beginners make the jump safely secured to one of the company's highly experienced instructors, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. When the time is right, the instructor will deploy the chute, giving his or her attached jumper plenty of time to admire the breathtaking view or write "wash me" on low-flying UFOs as they gently drift to the ground.
