SPRING SUMMER FALL - SCHEDULE OF TOURS - REOPENING ON MAY 25, 2019

TOURS EVERY DAY AT 9:00, 12:00, AND 3:00

RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED BUT WALK-UPS WILL BE ACCOMMODATED ON A SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS

Complimentary Transportation is available from the local area.

Available Tours:

The Prospector: Check in at the Base Camp, then enjoy a shuttle up the mountain in one of our vehicles including a snow coach, a snow cat with passenger wagon, a 4 wheel drive van or one of our other vehicles. It is a scenic climb up through the forest more than 1,000 vertical feet to the first zip line area at 11,200 feet of altitude. Enjoy 360 degree views of some of the tallest mountains in North America. See old gold mining areas and look for wildlife on our 2,500 acre private preserve. This tour takes from 2 to 2-1/2 Hours.

After a short "flight school" guests will embark on a course of SIX separate zip lining areas connected by easy down-hill walking trails through the forest. Four of the areas have dual lines so guests can fly side by side. THE BIG NUGGET IS THE SIXTH SECTION OF ZIP LINE OPENED IN LATE JULY 2014. THREE 850' ZIPS RUN SIDE X SIDE X SIDE DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAINS AND LAND ON THE 100' SKYTOWER. THIS IS THE GRAND FINALE for the tour. All Decks are flat on the ground, so guests do not climb up ladders in towers or trees to get up high. TOR has "natural altitude".

All lines have double cables for safety. Guests are attached to both the upper cable and the lower cable with separate carabiners for the ultimate safe experience. This is "hands free" zipping. Special "CATCH" Brakes provide a safe and easy landing; GUESTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO "SELF BRAKE". This means a safer and more enjoyable experience, especially for families with children.

At least two Certified Zip Line Guides accompany guests on the entire tour. Each section of the course has different aspects of terrain and distance off the ground. There is a stop along the way for snacks and water.

Expect to spend approximately 2 - 2-1/2 hours on this tour.

TOUR PRICES INCLUDE ALL SECTIONS.

  • Hands down the best zips in the state! I have been to 2 different tower only zip line places and they are okay but this one is my favorite! Worth the drive for sure. I have been out 4 times now and each time is just as fun as the last. The crew are always super down to earth and love what they do! They are friendly and the gear is always in great shape. I also meet a wild group when I go that keeps the laughs going the whole 2 hours so hopefully you have the same experience! I did however drop my iPhone on the last line because it is very fast and the break is a bit harder than the rest so be prepared for that! They tell you but really listen! I hope to be back again to do the snowmobile tour and winter zip lining!
  • These guys are the best! The zip lines are very well organized. Guests are driven up to the top in a fun military vehicle (which one depends on the size of the group). There are 6 lines to go down: 1 line for one person at a time, 1 where three people can go at once, and the rest where you can run two at a time. All of them are incredibly well reenforced compared to the average tourist zip line. We had 4 guides in total: two who went ahead to be 'catchers', 2 to set us up for each run, and someone taking great pictures of everyone. These pics are available for purchase at the end, dropped directly into your phone before you leave. I brought a crew of 3 very fearful family members to work through their fears. The crew was so funny, patient, cautious, and perfect for my objective. Everyone overcame their fears and had pictures of it all in the end. I've done this a few times but this experience of zipping through the beautiful mountains on line after line with this professional crew, was so memorable. I highly recommend it!
