There's a mountain in our backyard

Sunday, May 24, 2015


It's a very special thing to have Aoraki/Mount Cook in our backyard, it's New Zealand's highest mountain at 3,724m (12,316ft) and we skydive right in front of it. In fact our jumps are 13,000, 16,000 and 19,000ft so when you tandem skydive with us you're higher than everything in the whole country. 

This photo was taken with the sun dropping lower over the Tasman Sea to the right, and Aoraki/Mount Cook is the flat top mountain in the middle, the Fox Glacier is off to the right middle of the shot and you can see the upper basin of the Franz Josef Glacier in the foreground where it looks like the snow is crinkling.
