Skydiving in Odgen, UT

Located 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, Ogden, UT, is a growing center for skiing and adventure sports, and a gateway to Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Wolf Mountain ski resorts. But sorry, skiing just isn't death-defying enough. We're talking about skydiving, and Ogden has it. The real-deal, 120-miles-per-hour freefalls are at Ogden Skydiving Center, which offers everything from tandem jumping to advanced dives surrounded by mountains and the Great Salt Lake. For an indoor version, there's iFly's vertical wind tunnel. And how's this for bona fides? The Rockwell Airtime team, an Ogden-based crew skydiving team specializing in vertical formation dives, won gold medals at the 2010 U.S. Parachute Association National Skydiving Championships.
