ENJOY THIS RARE MIXTURE OF EXCITING INGREDIENTS FOR THE BEST TOUR IN THE AREA.
THE FIRST INGREDIENT:
THE TOP OF THE ROCKIES GUIDED WINTER ZIP LINE TOUR:
Meet your trained and certified zip line guides. These friendly guys and gals will be with you for the entire zipline course. They have been trained on the course and are keen to make sure you feel happy, safe and unafraid. Guests say our zip line guides are great with Fraidy Cats and you'll feel more confident once you have completed A safety briefing and training zip line before starting the course. We use various types of snow cat vehicles to get guests up the steep scenic winding mountain trails from Base Camp at 10,000' to the first departure deck at 11,500'. The type of shuttle vehicle depends on the snow and trail conditions. All departure decks are at ground level for easy access. They slope slightly downward so you take a little stroll, a few steps, before gliding away. All zip lines have double overhead cables. You are hooked to both the upper and the lower cable with separate carabiners and on the harness with a double hook-up as well. You will do SIX separate zip lining sections, each with entirely different elements of terrain, speed and distance off the ground, all with long cables up to 900 feet. Our automatic braking system eliminates the need to self-brake. This is particularly important for families with children.
FLY SIDE BY SIDE on Twin Zip Lines on 4 Sections of the Zip line, then enjoy one single zip line though a narrow area in the forest, then the grand finale is Zip Line #6 called the BIG NUGGET because of the mining history of the area. The Big Nugget is a Triple Zip Line with three cables leading to the landing on our 100' Sky Towers. These lines are the longest and fastest on the course. Return to earth on wide stairways and rest on six spacious landings. Pose for photos surrounded by some of the allest mountains in North America.

Groomed trails make this an exciting and enjoyable ride for all levels of experience. Tour groups are small, usually four to six snowmobiles.
