Helmets are mandatory and provided, we do not use full face helmets. Wear warm winter clothing, (ski wear is appropriate), insulated waterproof boots, gloves, scarf or neck gator, goggles or sunglasses for eye protection. We are unable to provide clothing so guests arriving without appropriate gear cannot participate.
Relax and enjoy the views in cozy comfort as our powerful Snow Coach climbs almost 1,000 vertical feet to the first zip line departure deck at 11.500 feet of altitude. Look for possible wildlife as the driver points out areas of interest and gives commentary about the history of the area. (We reserve the right to use an optional shuttle if trail conditions are not appropriate for the snow cat. Polaris Rangers, and cat-track vans also provide safe and scenic transportation up the steep trails.) Our zip line guides are certified on the course and will accompany guests as they fly from area to area on lines from 400 to 900 feet, some with cables 300 feet off the ground. All six separate zip line sections have DOUBLE CABLES FOR SAFETY and distinctly different terrain. “Self-Braking is not required; we have an automatic braking system. Guests will soar side by side on TWIN LINES on five sections of the 6-section course, over dense pine forests, deep canyons and remote alpine meadows at ‘the top of the world’. ZIP #6, the BIG NUGGET ZIP, brings fliers down from the high cliffs, landing on the 100’ Sky Tower. The Big Nugget is a TRIPLE ZIP. Our Zip Line is registered with the State of Colorado and was built and inspected yearly according to the highest standards.
