Skydiving in Winter: Pro Tips On How To Do It Right

By Jason Thompson - UK Parachuting

Yes, you CAN skydive in winter, and ENJOY it too! We jump at UK Parachutng all year round, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t try it at least once.

So WHY jump in the cold? First, you get to enjoy a DIFFERENT view. The snow covered ground and the familiar scenery, all shiny and white, is one of the prettiest things to see. Second, it feels good to conquer the elements. Why stay grounded and bored when you can put some warm layers on and go fly? Challenge accepted! And third, if crowds aren’t your thing, the drop zone is definitely quieter in winter. You can enjoy a more relaxed pace and avoid the long waiting times.

There is some preparation necessary though to keep you safe and comfortable in the cold. We gathered the best advice from experienced skydivers.
