Although zip lines freed humans from the tyranny of the ground, they permanently damaged our relationship with trees by enabling us to crash elite canopy-top parties. Get a leaf’s-eye view with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a Zoom Zip Line Tour at WildPlay Whistler, located on Cougar Mountain (a $100.79 value, HST included).
WildPlay Whistler engages animal instincts with thrilling aerial adventure courses and heart-racing zip line routes through the mountains. Safely suspended 400 feet above the ground, spend three hours soaking in Cougar Mountain’s magnificent vista of rolling hills blanketed with trees and wisps of cloud. Zip liners can float leisurely through the pine needles or flash by at speeds up to 100km/hour down a 200-foot elevation drop. With multiple side-by-side zip lines, WildPlay’s system encourages tree-fliers to glide through the canopy alongside their favourite vine-swinger or flying-squirrel enthusiast.
The Adventure Group
Nothing can stop the call of adventure. Not snow. Not water. Not even the normal limitations of gravity. No, the guides at The Adventure Group pull excitement out of any season and outdoor location. They send people soaring on ziplines high above Cougar Mountain year round and white-water rafting down towards the Cheakamus, Elaho and Green Rivers every summer . Don a harness and play like a kid again on the incredibly unique Treetop Adventure Course.
Colder months means snowshoe hikes and snowmobile tours across the Whistler and Cougar Mountains terrain. When that snow melts, RZRs take over, roaring down backcountry trails through ancient old growth forest and pristine mountain lakes.
