Tandem Sky Diving (Round 1)
You know what it’s like jumping off a cliff? Yeah, it’s nothing like that!
Look we’re not rocket scientists here; we can’t answer the deep questions like why does chocolate taste so good? It’s simply because it’s divine. And that’s really how you’ll feel during and after your skydive. It’s almost god-like, meditative, nirvana (the state not the depressing grunge band).
From a core biological classification, skydiving feels really good! There’s an overwhelming release of neurochemicals that flood into your body that dilate time, heighten senses, and open the flood gates of some serious kick-ass, all natural, feel good chemicals that are a tasty bite of blissfulness. There’s no prescription required for this ride. The fact is there’s really nothing exactly like the amazing feeling of skydiving. Our description can’t do it justice and we think our copywriter already knocking it out of the park.
We think skydiving is an otherworldly experience. Especially at Alberta Skydive Central where we’ve build a skydiving super center where we’ve taken every possible part of the skydive process and pushed it to premium: highest jumps in Canada, more than double freefall, most airlift in the country, beautiful mountain views, the largest full service skydive training facility in the country and a team of super stoked, highly experienced and many National Team members. If 90% of the local experienced skydivers go to one skydive center, what should that tell you? It says that we’re the bomb (you can use that word at our airport).
No matter if you end up doing just one jump or thousands, the fact is you can only do your first jump once. So please come to the skydive center that can offer you the best experience. It’s worth a little extra drive; its worth a few extra dollars (we price match so that you can experience the most from your skydive instead of settling for what you can afford so take us up on the offer).
Skydiving is the only activity, at least that we know of, that actually combines two sports into one. Freefall and the parachute (or canopy) ride are completely different sensory experiences. It’s often a very interesting split between people that have completed their first jump in terms of which they prefer. Of course, freefall is the main draw and is a paradoxically an intense, adrenaline jolt of fuck yeah but also a surprising present moment, free and zen feeling. It’s fast, loud, windy, is a fully sensory immersive and overloading experience. But when the parachute opens, your view changes (you transition from a horizontal, belly to earth position to an upright, vertical position).
Our team is full of super stoked skydivers, many of whom have made significant personal and financial sacrifices to choose to live this lifestyle. We love sharing the first skydive experience with everyone; it’s not ever job that you get to make dreams come true, sleigh bucket lists, celebrate birthdays and and collect copious amounts of hugs and high fives at work (sorry clowns, doctors, veterinarians – we win).
