Rocky Mountain Skydive allows first-time skydivers to bypass all the extensive training and pre-jump classwork normally required to jump out of a plane. How? By attaching them to the chest of a certified jumping professional. All novice skydivers have to do is attend a super brief introductory session before climbing aboard a plane that very same day and soaking up all the gorgeous Colorado scenery—including the namesake mountains—while free falling at up to 180 mph. Of course, if thrill seekers really want to go it alone, the facility offers skydiving licensing courses that progress from tandem to solo jumps.
