California Thrill Seekers

Fly Through the Air

For the first timer, the Parachute Center offers an Introductory Jump for $100.00. The Introductory Jump will give you an overall look at the sport. It includes all equipment, training, plane ride, and a freefall jump with a specially trained Instructor. The jump is from 13,000 feet and will give you 60 seconds of freefall (approximately two miles), and a five minute descent under a specially designed parachute. Weight is an important factor on the tandem jump. If you weigh over 200 pounds, there is a service charge of $1.00 per pound for every pound over 200. If you are 215 pounds and under, you will still go to the top altitude, if you are over 215 pounds, the jump is from 6,000 feet with a shorter freefall time, but you will still have a five minute descent under the parachute. The Introductory Jump will introduce you to the sport in the safest possible environment under the direct supervision of your Instructor. NO RESERVATIONS are necessary for The Introductory Jump. We are OPEN EVERYDAY at 9 a.m., we ask you to be here by 3 p.m. during the week and by 4 p.m. on the weekends. We do jump later but set these times to allow us adequate time for the training and the jump. Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes and tennis shoes. You must be 18 years of age to begin Skydiving. Please no personal checks, we do accept Master Card/Visa (5% service charge) and ATM ($1 charge) and cash. Feel free to call or e-mail for further information.

At Big Bear

Ride the exhilarating Alpine Slide - the only authentic bobsled experience in Southern California. Riders navigate their own individually controlled sleds down their choice of two quarter-mile long cement tracks filled with high-banked turns and long straightaways. And, don't miss innertubing down Magic Mountain's snowplay hill. It's the only one to make its own snow, and is often the first winter recreation area in Southern California to open, usually in early November.

Ride the Rubicon!
The Rubicon Trail is the most famous and arguably the most challenging four-by-four trail in North America. And it's right here at Lake Tahoe.

A great way to ride the Rubicon is on a backcountry ATV tour with Lake Tahoe Adventures. You'll learn to safely and competently operate a rugged, four-wheel-drive, all-terrain vehicle - even if you've never driven off pavement before. Then an experienced, professional guide will lead you and your friends on an expedition you'll remember forever.

Check out our new ATV buggies
We have just added new ATV buggies that tour the beautiful Pine Nut Mountains. Click here for more info.

Take a Tour to the Top of the World
Sit back and relax as your guide chauffeurs you in a classic Jeep or the amazing Hummer through the woods, around the rocks, and then breaks out above treeline on 9,150-foot high Genoa Peak. Enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe to the west and nearly 3,000 feet below you. Beyond that, you’ll see the Sierra Crest still wearing snow from last winter. Turn around and look out onto the Great Basin, the big Nevada desert stretching away hundreds of miles to the east.
