SNOW ZIP TOURS OFFERED BY TOP OF THE ROCKIES
FIVE HOUR, HIGH FLYING/FAST MOVING, THRILL-SEEKERS ACTION COMBO WITH BOX LUNCH: Snow Cat/Zip Line and Snowmobile Adventure at the Top of the Rocky Mountains.
Experience the ultimate tour; a true Colorado Rocky Mountain high. There is no other comparable activity anywhere in the world.
See the Rocky Mountains from areas never before accessible to the public. Our spectacular 2000 acre private property has views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, and rests on the splendid slopes of Mt. Arkansas, an almost “Fourteener” at 13,795 feet. More than fifty old patented gold mining claims hide under the powder, but some of the mine shafts will be visible as you explore the area by snowmobile, snow cat, and zip line. After check-in at our base camp at 10,000 feet, snowmobilers will receive a safety briefing and an opportunity for practice in a meadow before climbing up more than 1,000 vertical feet on trails through the forest to play in high alpine meadows and back-country bowls. During the tour, riders will stop for hot chocolate at our cozy yurt. After returning to base, a delicious box lunch will be provided before “Flight School”. Guests will receive a helmet and harness, learn about the equipment, then enjoy a short zip on a practice line before boarding one of our snow cats for the trip up the mountain to the first take-off platform at 11,000 feet. The driver will entertain with information and commentary about the area while skillfully negotiating the scenic winding trails. Our course has five separate zip lining sections, each with entirely different exciting elements of speed, height and terrain, with cables up to 850 feet, some more than 300 feet off the ground. Guests can fly side by side on dual lines with magical views of the snowy alpine tundra just under the lip of the great Continental Divide. After finishing the last zip line section, transportation will be waiting to transport guests back to the base camp.
Free transportation can be arranged from area hotels and condos. Helmets are mandatory and provided. Complimentary coveralls and boots are available if needed, but personal warm winter apparel is appropriate and recommended. Guests must bring goggles or sunglasses as these are not provided.

TWO HOUR ZIP LINE/SNOW CAT TOUR: After check-in, guests will receive their equipment then participate in a short “flight school” before boarding one of our snow cats. Relax in cozy comfort as the powerful cat climbs almost 1,000 vertical feet to the first zip line platform. Look for possible wildlife as the snow cat driver points out areas of interest and gives commentary about the history of the area. Our zip line guides are certified on the course and will accompany guests as they fly from area to area on lines from 400 to 850 feet, some with cables 300 feet off the ground. All five separate zip line sections have distinctly different terrain, and riders will soar side by side over dense pine forests, deep canyons and remote alpine meadows at ‘the top of the world’.
