How To Relax Before Your First Utah Tandem Skydiving Experience

Published: June 22, 2016

Coming to Skydive the Wasatch for your first tandem skydive? Hooray!

If you're nervous, you're not the first--so we've put together this list of unique-to-Skydive-the-Wasatch stress relievers. You're gonna love it here!

1. Take a seat.

We have lots of options for places to hang out: picnic tables under a shade tarp. chairs around a fire pit, and dozens of couches. Grab a comfy perch and watch other people coming in for landing before you--once you check out those stoked faces, you'll be raring to go.

2. Hydrate with a free drink.

We have a fridge full of free sodas (and Capri Suns, if that's more your thing.) Just ask!

3. Chill at the park.

There's a pretty park in the middle of town--just 3 quick miles away. Gaze up at the big blue sky and blow off some steam!

4. Grab a bite.

You could go for a relaxing sit-down breakfast (or lunch) at our favorite local haunt: Lisa's Country Kitchen. It's super-yummy.

5. Take the scenic route.

On your way in, you could take the Mt. Nebo Scenic Byway. It's a A 35-mile paved road that runs along the wildflower-scattered Mt. Nebo Wilderness Area on the Uinta National Forest. It's tranquil, colorful and majestic--just what the doctor ordered.

6. Make a splash.

Head over to the gorgeous Burasten Ponds for a calming swim--or get a tiny taste of freefall on the rope swing.


This was such an amazing experience! The instructors were great and very informational. They made sure you were comfortable and sure about jumping! I'll be back for sure!
