Top reasons why Winter is a great time to skydive

Winter is often overlooked for skydiving, but at Skydive Oz, we believe it’s one of the best times of the year to take the plunge. As the only full-service beach resort skydiving center in Australia, we offer unique experiences that are even more special during the winter months. Here are the top reasons why winter is a great time to skydive.

Special Winter Highlights at Skydive Oz

Winter is a fantastic time to skydive. Contrary to popular belief, the winter months often bring crisp, clear days with stunning views. The air is cooler and has less moisture, which means you’ll be able to see for miles and miles. 

Whale Watching: Winter is whale season, and during your skydive, you’ll have the chance to see pods of whales from above. It’s a breathtaking sight that adds an extra special touch to your skydiving experience.

Snow-Capped Mountains: On clear winter days, the snow-capped mountains of Perisher are visible from the sky. This stunning view is something you won’t get during the warmer months.

Less crowds and great prices.

While summer is the busiest time for skydiving, winter offers its own unique advantages. There are fewer people, which means less waiting time and a more laid-back atmosphere at the dropzone. The weather conditions are often more favorable for parachuting, with less wind and more blue skies. Plus, the prices are fab! Fewer people jumping means lower prices, so you can take advantage of some awesome deals.

Does Temperature Affect Skydiving?

Temperature does affect skydiving, but not in the way you might think. The clean air has less moisture which makes for a very smooth parachute ride. While it’s true that it can be a bit chilly at jump altitude, the cold is manageable with a few layers of warm clothing and a skydive suit. In fact, many skydivers find the cooler air to be invigorating. It’s possible to skydive comfortably in winter, and the benefits far outweigh the slight chill. 

Tips for Skydiving in Winter

  1. Dress Appropriately: Wear layers to keep warm. A good base layer, a mid-layer for insulation, and a windproof outer layer are key.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Even in cooler weather, staying hydrated is important.
  3. Stay flexible with your booking: While winter has mostly clear days, it’s always good to have the flexibility to change your booking if there is some bad weather on the day.
