We wanted to do white water Rapids but there was no session offered that day. We were instead suggested to try zip lining. Glad we did!! Super good and super experience. Out two guides were experienced and helped us well.

We took our grandkids here ages 7 and 9. We took three trips down the mountain coaster and it was awesome. We all loved it. I won't do regular roller coasters at amusement parks but this was a different kind of ride. You never get the feeling of dropping-just speed if you want it. You control the brakes and the... More

This tour was a lot of fun. There were a lot of bugs and hiking though. I would suggest you use bug spray or wear pants and long sleeves. If hiking up hill might be a problem for you the Valley Jump Tour is probably not for you.

Even our too-cool 15-year-old got excited about this, and squealed a bit as he crossed the valley. This tour is a lot of fun. Our guides (Josh and Ross) were friendly, informative, and helpful and just the right amount of fun without trying too hard. The web site is not exaggerating about the final hike in the Valley Jump tour... More

The tour was a lot of fun. All the guides were alot of fun, especially Josh. He was funny, maybe even a little crazy.lol. The only regrets I have with the Mountain Top tour is that I didn't try the Valley tour which has even higher ziplines. Other than that ,no regrets.

This is a ski resort that has summer activities as well! The only totally green ski resort in world (as of right now). My husband and I had a great experience doing the big zip lining tour. Website doesn't really explain the difference between tours, so it's worth a call if you have questions. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Biggest zip line... More

Uk travellers on our summer holidays thought we would give zip lining a go. So pleased we did. We had a fabulous morning- our guides were really good fun(Josh & Caity) . I wasn't sure how I was going to fair due to having a problem with heights. I needn't have worried , I felt incredibly safe allowing me to... More
