Fly through the woods


Sunday River offers two zipline adventures: Zipline Tours take small groups on a tour through the woods between ski trails on a six-zipline course, and our Twin Zips offer side-by-side zipline action right at the base of the slopes.

 

Six-Zipline Course

The Zipline Tour features a series of six lines ranging from 100 to 300 feet in length to take you flying through the woods and over a ravine and stream bed at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour, followed by 750-foot Twin Zips. The wooded course, accessed via the South Ridge Express, is hidden between South Ridge and Spruce Peak. For a final run, you'll walk over to the Twin Zips to finish your tour right over the Sundance Trail just outside the South Ridge Lodge. It's an all-thrills, no-skills activity for all ages!  (Twin Zips are also available without taking the full tour.)

  • Zipline Tour Schedule/Reservations: Tours are available with groups of 8-12 people. Please call in advance to secure a tour: 800-543-2754.
  • Duration: Approximately 1-2 hours. Depart South Ridge Lodge and ride the lift to the course. After completing the woods course, a 10-minute walk on snow brings you across South Ridge for a final run on the Twin Zips  Please dress accordingly.

Our Twin Zips give you the rush of flying through the air on one long zipline.

Safety

Safety is our top priority. Our guides fit you with state-of-the-art equipment and safety information is reviewed prior to each zipline tour. Zipline guides have trained extensively in the proper techniques and procedures of safety. Each piece of equipment and lines are inspected daily. Our guides will ensure your safety while you have fun!  Each guest can fly relaxed, knowing that they are connected with two attachment points on each zipline. Our ziplines are designed to use a gravity braking system complemented by an arrester system and our guides. This means it's hands free and worry free for your enjoyment!
