What You Can Expect

Zipline Adventure in Whistler

Zipline at Twilight

Choose a tour time and route, then meet your professional guide in Whistler and shuttle to the zipline site. (See start times under the ‘Important Info’ tab.) Your thrilling aerial adventure takes place in the valley between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Prior to setting off, listen to a brief safety lesson, put on the provided protective gear and strap in for the approximate 2.5-hour circuit. You’ll soar along steel lines through 33 acres (11 hectares) of temperate rainforest, cruising above rivers, trails and native wildlife like bears, lynx, deer, owls, grouse and squirrels.

After your tour, hop back in the shuttle to Whistler Village.

Choose from the following two route options.

Bear Tour:
Cruise along five towering zipline tracks ranging from 200 feet (61 meters) to more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) long connected through canopy bridges and boardwalks. The Bear Tour is great for families and beginner zipliners!

Eagle Tour:
For the more experience zipliner, this 2,000-foot (600-meter) heart-thumping zipline shoots you through the forest, and ends all the way back in Whistler Village. Great for adrenaline seekers!


What to bring:

  • Dress for the day's weather but be advised that mountain weather can change quickly and unexpectedly. In summer, shorts and T-shirts are often suitable. In winter, we recommend guests wear the same gear they'd wear for a day of skiing — but without the ski boots. Layers work best. All platforms have heaters to allow guests to warm up between zips.
  • Rain gear, jackets and pants, winter boots and mittens are available.
  • Wear hiking boots or athletic type footwear — dress shoes, high-heels and sandals are not recommended.

Health, Safety and Physical Requirements:

  • Participants must be a minimum of 65lbs/30kgs (Bear Tours) or 75lbs/34kgs (Eagle Tours) to a maximum of 275lbs/125kgs. If under the minimum weight, please contact Guest Services to arrange a tandem ride with a guide.
  • Be prepared for light physical exertion and be aware that the tour includes climbing stairs and some hiking.
  • No smoking, drugs or alcohol are permitted on the tour at any time.

A great afternoon outing. It is fast and high and once you start criss crossing the river you can't stop! Staff were phenomenal and the other guests were super. It is the safest scariest thing I have done! Strap your harness on and have fun zipping!
