Overview

EXPERIENCE 6 THRILLING ZIP LINES AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD. All zips have double cables for the safest zipping. "Self-braking" is not required; our "catch brakes" will bring you to a safe and comfortable landing. TOP OF THE ROCKIES zip line is located on Highway 91 just 14 miles south of Copper Mountain from Exit 195 on Interstate 70. Our PRIVATE 2500 acre property high on the Continental Divide has 40 old gold mining claims, pine and aspen forests, vast canyons and bubbling streams. Ride a 6-1/2 ton Monster Truck up to the first zip line deck at 11,200 feet,then experience SIX separate zip lines with long lines up to 850 feet. All zip decks are flat on the ground for easy access. Zip line areas are connected by scenic, easy walking, down-hill trails. Fly side-by-side on four twin lines and 1 single, then soar side-by-side-by-side from the rocky cliffs on the BIG NUGGET ZIP, a Triple Header. Land on our 100' tall Sky Tower with majestic views of Mount Elbert & Mount Massive, two of the tallest mountains in North America. At least two professional zip line guides accompany every tour group. We are the closest zip line company to Summit County, only minutes away from Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone, Dillon and Vail, approximately one and a half hours from the metro Denver area. Aspen is approx. 1 hour away over Independence Pass in summer months. It's always cool and comfortable year round in this high alpine area. Ask about our Rails & Zip line Combo with lunch. We are the only zip line company in the world to fly over a moving train. Winter Snow Zipping tours include a snow cat/zip line tour or snowmobile/zip lining combos.

Wow, what a great zipline experience (we've ziplined in TN and Big Sky, MT... this is very comparable to MT). Our older teens enjoyed it as much as we did. Our guides (Shoney, Leland, Daryl) were fun, entertaining, personable and always focused on our safety....More

A great experience for 2 families aging from 7-68 years old. There are at least 5 lines that cross Rail Road tracks as well as the Arkansas River. It was so much fun when we zipped in 2016, that we did it again in 2017!...More
