Just a few years ago, you’d hear stories about canopy tours in Costa Rica or the Amazon or other exotic locations. Recently though, the technology has caught up and has found ways to standardize their safety so that they are insurable, consistent with industry standards, and a phenomenal experience for people of all ages.
Our 14-element zip canopy tour is created with a balance of entertainment and education in mind:
Beginning near the top of the quad-chair lift, the initial zip line traverses the ski slope to a ground landing near a rocky outcrop. This training run allows participants to get a feel for the equipment on a low-exposure practice run. This unique setting also allows those of you the opportunity to “opt out” at this point.
The next series of zip lines provide big valley views and the opportunity to be immersed in the old-growth canopy. The tour traverses back and forth through the Laurel filled valley on a series of zip lines and bridge elements – each beginning and terminating with large decks that will comfortably accommodate client groups. The final higher speed zip line emerges from the woods at the base of Frozen Falls.
