The designers of Zip Yosemite, Experience Based Learning, focuses on adventure and safety in building their courses, but they also take care to look after the environment. The company uses Professional Ropes Course Association–accredited builders, who anchor single cables to trees using the Eco-Wrap system, a bolt-free method that doesn't pierce the tree and invite criticism from its grandparents. Using this system, the company can string six ziplines up to 1,000 feet long at heights of up to 80 feet through the aromatic canopies of incense cedars and ponderosa pine trees. Guides take visitors darting down these single-cable paths and across three suspension bridges. Then, they rappel toward the forest floor at one of two rappelling stations. As visitors glide through the forest, they can catch glimpses of wildlife as well as the Fresno Dome and other natural rock formations.

Aesthetician Sonya Uribe doesn't limit the scope of her skincare expertise to the face. Though she does administer facials for a variety of concerns—signs of aging, acne, and sensitive skin among them—she also pampers backs and hands. Her rejuvenating back facial cleans and exfoliates areas that clients can't typically reach, whereas a hand treatment combines organic oils with sea salt to soften the skin. Regardless of whether she's performing a vitamin-C brightening facial or a firming treatment for the skin around the eyes, she always strives to advise clients on their at-home regimen, helping them to maintain healthy, refreshed pores.
The eponymous owner of Clarisa’s Golden Touch specializes in gilding body builders. She wields a professional spray-tanning wand during each treatment, carefully misting the skin to accentuate each patron’s body and skin tone. Whether patrons want full or partial color, Clarisa creates a comfortable environment with in-studio and on-the-go services. She provides thorough instructions for achieving competition color, suggesting that patrons depilate and exfoliate their entire body in advance of the application. By following these steps and also declining double-dog dares to streak through the car wash, patrons achieve tans that last up to ten days.
