“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We booked the Mammoth tour which combines the Bear and Eagle tour. It's a must do when visiting Whistler. After a trail run at the base of the mountain, we were picked up and a van drove us up the mountain. We had a private tour, because nobody else had booked the Mammoth tour that day. (lucky) Our two guides explained a lot about the trees and enviroment, which was great and very interesting and they were very safety aware!! Also included was the TreeTrek Canopy Walk, which also was a lot of fun. The zipping itself was awesome. What a feeling! Like a bird in the sky. Breathtaking.

“Exhelerating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Done the eagle tour and had a blast.
The guides were very encouraging and energetic and every zip was met with amazing views. The guides also had an extensive knowledge of the locale flora and fauna.

“Zip and Swoosh for the ultimate fun !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

As a beginner, we tested our fear on the Bear tour. This includes just 5 ziplines and they were awesome, nonetheless. My friend and I arrived for the earliest slot booked and expecting other people in the tour. To our surprise, they were just the two of us for that time so it was like we booked and closed the tour for ourselves. Talk about exclusivity. The stillness and the beauty of the rainforest all to ourselves. The guides- Ali & Chris were just fantastic! There was an initial run at the base of whistler where the gondola is and then we hopped on the ziptrek van to go up the rainforest. On the way we passed by the sledtrack used in the olympics '10 bobsledding/skeleton.
The experience was awesome ,the snow covered rainforest was stunning and great information shared during the tour. We walked from one platform to the next and we enjoyed nature at its best winter time. To note, we are almost at the end of winter in BC but the place is still packed with snow. It was a combi of rain and snow as forecasted on our drive up from Vancouver but another great thing that it did not rain during the whole ziplining .
It is a must fun experience to do in Whistler and dont forget to combine it with Peak2Peak ride.
The summit was beautiful in the winter but thats another story.
Will comeback for the Mammoth tour. Ready for the big time !!

“Fun afternoon if you tire of skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful time on the ziplining tour with a party of seven. There are five zip lines, three of which cross from blackcomb to whistler or vice versa. Unfortunately, it was raining the day we went, so that dampened our experience a little bit, but didn't dampen the enthusiasm of our tour guides, Chris and Tomas. Thanks for all the info, and keeping us safe during our incredible ziplining experience.

“Great way to end a wonderful trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

What a great experience! We decided at the last minute to try this out and what a great decision! The staff is very professional and our guides amazing! You get a great education as well about the area. We took our 8 year old daughter and she can't quit talking about it. Thanks for making our last day in Whistler so memorable.
