It’s not a coincidence that the #1 ski

resort and the #1 zipline tour in North

America are located in the same place.

 

 Whistler is a unique, pristine and thrilling

destination which is the perfect backdrop

 for the originators of North America’s

zipline eco-tour.  

 

Ziptrek Ecotours has thrilled hundreds  of

 thousands of visitors year round and  in all

weather.

evolved from a trend setting 5 cable  zipline

 tour  to offering multiple  eco-activities

 directly between Whistler and Blackcomb

Mountains!  

 

The tour area now boasts 7 suspension

 bridges, 2 rigid aerial bridges, 10 treetop

 viewing platforms and a total of 10 ziplines

divided between 2 tours.

 

Experience the exhilaration of stepping

off a platform, sailing 2300’ through air,

dropping over 20 stories from start to

 finish on one of the world’s longest tree

 to tree ziplines, while reaching speeds

 of up to 80 km/hr (up to 60mph)!

 Located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, Four

Seasons Resort Whistler amply delivers on the brand’s

 promise of ‘functional rooms and intuitive service’

– another way of saying everything you want is close

 to hand and the things you’d only half-imagined are
