Escape the busy ski areas and towns. Come to White Mountain's PRIVATE paradise and enjoy back country views where not a single hotel or condo can be seen. Only our guests are allowed to access this pristine area. Relax and enjoy the views in cozy comfort as the powerful Snow Coach climbs up through the forest to the first zip line area at 11,500' of altitude. Here you will find the deepest snow levels in the area. Look for wildlife as the driver points out areas of interest while giving commentary about the historic mining history of the area. Our Zip Line Guides are certified on the course and accompany guests as they fly from area to area on lines from 400 to 950'. Departure Decks are flat on the side of the mountain for easy access. All SIX separate sections have Double Overhead Cables for safety and distinctly different terrain. The automatic braking system assures stress free landings. Fly SIDE BY SIDE on 4 TWIN lines over deep canyons and remote alpine meadows. Zip Line #6, THE BIG NUGGET is a TRIPLE ZIP which lands on the 100' SKY TOWER. Return to earth on wide stairways and enjoy the photo opportunities from six viewing decks. Our zip line is registered with the State of Colorado and inspected yearly according to the highest standards
