Announced recently, Ziptrek's new +2 km zipline, set for a mid-July opening will carry the moniker The Sasquatch™ Zipline!
WHISTLER, BC, May 12, 2015 /CNW/ - Ziptrek Ecotours, based in Whistler, Canada, who announced back in late March that they would be launching a ground-breaking zipline in the popular resort destination, have now released a name for the new line.
"Our current zipline tour offerings all have associated names, which happen to be animal based, so we figured it was fitting to continue in that custom. In the case of Sasquatch, we loved that it carries some mythical and mysterious aspects to it, and is typically thought of as thrilling and formidable, like the new zipline will be, explains Ziptrek Director of Marketing Warrick Hubbard.
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 Canada and the USA.
"The other characteristic of Sasquatch that we were drawn to was that it has quite a strong tradition and association with the Pacific Northwest", further noted Hubbard, "not to mention there is often an appeal or fun aspect, especially for guests, to have a character or persona tied to your product".
