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


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.

  • I could not have asked for a better time zip lining. The weather, the views, the staff were awesome and explained everything and I felt safe to jump off and enjoy the ride! I definitely will be back....  more »
  • I'm scared to death of heights but the guys here really helped me understand that the ziplines here are safe. Came with my parents and brother (all of us adults over 21) and my family really enjoyed.....  more »
  • Awesome zip line from tree line way high up almost top of the mountain. The guides are great and photographer super. Do this!!!
  • My family and I did a zip line tour with these guys yesterday and it was absolutely awesome! All of the views we're amazing and the temperature was just right for us to enjoy them. The crew was also awesome. They were joking around with us and super friendly which made the trip even better. I really hope I can come back in the winter and do one of their guided snow mobile tours! Also, don't forget to get the photos! It was actually pretty cheap and the quality of the photos were amazing! The photographer really knows what she's doing and got some great action shots of all of us. Thanks to the entire crew, we'll definitely be recommending y'all and will hopefully be back soon!
