Adventure seekers take note. Ziptrek preparing to launch a zipline spanning over 2 kms long, creating 7,000 feet of unmatched pure exhilaration!
WHISTLER, BC, March 24, 2015 /CNW/ - Ziptrek Ecotours, based in Whistler, Canada, is setting the stage to launch a ground-breaking zipline this summer in the world renowned resort destination. Being the pioneer of zipline tours in North America, Ziptrek is no stranger to unveiling innovative and cutting-edge zipline installations. As a global leader in the industry, this latest installment is in keeping with their award winning reputation.
Set to run a mind-blowing distance of over 2 kms, the zipline will fly guests from a launch high up on Blackcomb Mountain to a landing near mid-mountain on Whistler Mountain, making it the longest zipline in the US and Canada. "This will be a game-changer without a doubt!" says Ziptrek CEO Charles Steele. "For those familiar with the world record breaking Peak to Peak Gondola, this zipline rides a similar path, spanning the 2 Mountains, from a high elevation. You can just imagine the views from up there are simply spectacular, where riders will be able to get an amazing perspective of their complete surroundings. That is, when they take the opportunity to take it all in – because it will be quite the thrill ride!"
Currently set to open in mid-July, the zipline will be run as a solo offering, and as a tour product. A first for Ziptrek, who typically specialize in tours offering multiple ziplines at their permanent locations. "Given the sheer significance of this offering, and knowing some adventure seekers are simply looking to do the best out there, there will be the single zipline experience, but also a tour version available", says Steele.
