Don't Miss Your One Chance to Skydive Over America's Tallest Mountain
We're still "good to go" on June's history-making skydive over Alaska's Mt McKinley, despite our failure to get permission to land near the mountain. It takes more than a National Park official with a love for saying "No!" to stop us from delivering an incredible adventure! In fact, thanks to Denali Park Superintendent Paul Anderson, our Mt McKinley Skydive just got a whole lot more incredible.
Here's the scoop: A rule that's been on the books since the 1960's and was intended to keep squatters in parks from being supplied by parachute prohibits "conducting air delivery" into a National Park, unless it's an emergency, or you have a permit. Mt McKinley lies in the middle of Denali National Park, so we applied for a permit from Superintendent Anderson to land somewhere near the mountain.
He said No. Not just once, but three times. "You can go jump some other mountain", we were told. (We already have. Last year we jumped Mt Everest.) We were accused of trying to stage a stunt. (Was Sir Edmund Hillary's climb of Mt Everest just a stunt?) Most recently, we were told that we "cannot get a permit for something that is prohibited without permit."
What does this all mean? It means the first-ever Mt McKinley Skydive has now become a HAHO jump, a high-altitude cross country adventure over some of the most magnificent scenery in the country. The requirement to get out of the park before landing means jumpers may now spend more than 25 minutes under canopy, flying across mountains, canyons, glaciers and more before touching down just outside the National Park. More time in the air means more time to enjoy the view and capture amazing photos and video.
Time is running out to be one of the only people in the world to skydive over Mt McKinley and Denali National Park. The $25,000 cost includes training, use of equipment, the tandem jump itself and lodging. Remember, no skydiving experience is necessary. For more info, email or call 800-644-7382.
