We did the eagle tour one afternoon after skiing. This lasted around 3 hours and included 5 zip lines. It was easy to book online and the cost was reasonable. The company are based in Whistler a few minutes walk from the gondola, where the tour starts, so there was no time lost travelling to the location. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and we felt safe the whole time. We enjoyed the walks in the snow and along the tree top walkways between the lines. The tour inludes some long, high zip lines which were great fun. You need warm dress - we wore our ski gear. I'd recommend taking your ski mask too to protect your eyes from the wind as you whiz down the zip wire! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Went with a group of friends from work and had a brilliant time – in brief, the guides were very entertaining, amazing setting and definitely recommend as a fun way to spend an afternoon! Loved the photo’s as well, some great one's of the final Zip where most of us actually turned upside down and let go. They cost extra but discounted the more people that buy so worked out well in a larger group and they have the coolest lego man USB. I've done zipline style activities elsewhere quite a few times before but was definitely the most scenic one so far as you cross the frozen creek a few times and there was snow all around. Would like to go again and do the Eagle tour for a higher adrenaline rush but the Bear tour perfect if newbies to zipping or anyone in the group a little nervous on heights as gradual progression and you can choose different ways to zip (backwards / upside down) depending on your nerves :).

First of all, if you are not brave enough to try zip lining, you can try the tree trek tour. You go around a vast network of bridges, stairs and platforms that are sustainably suspended high in the forest canopy. You get to see others who are zip lining. When you feel excited about it, you can sign up for zip lining later. It has plenty of safety features so it is not dangerous.
Erin was our guide and he is very friendly and knowledgeable about sustainability in the alpine forest. We met several other guides along the tour too. Seems like they are all fantastic.
The views are awe inspiring and greatly humbling.
I am a total environmentalist. So I hugged as many trees as possible on the tour and soaked up as much knowledge of forest sustainability as possible during this tour.
This is an absolute must when you go to Whistler. It is easily missed as most attractions are skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, other typical winter sports. I visited Whistler because of the tree trek tour and not because of the skiing activities.

This tour is located in the valley between Blackcombe and Whistler. Private, peaceful and away from the bustling crowds. An experience of a lifetime.

Will definitely let as many people know about this great activity as possible and will definitely visit again.

I did the bear tour with a group of friends and we all had so much fun! It was my first time ziplining and this was a great introduction tour to take. There was beautiful scenery and the staff made us all feel very welcome and safe.

I would recommend anyone who comes to Whistler should try the Ziptrek tours. Its great fun and scary (good way to face your fear of heights) in a very safe way! The guides are very knowledgeable, friendly and make the tour enjoyable.
