One of the fastest growing adventure sports is Zip riding or Zip-Line Riding. This awe-inspiring sport involves riding or “zipping” through the woods on a “zip line” that is secured to your body. The sport can be enjoyed by all ages, involves little equipment, and is truly exhilarating. Participants aged 8 to 80 describe the experience as “soaring, awesome, cool”.
A farily new zip line system is located at Northern Lights Rock and Ice in Essex, Vermont. Northern Lights is part of the adventure center facilities at the Essex Resort and Spa. With a focus on team-building activities, Northern Lights offers several packages for their overnight guests that include cargo nets, dual zip lines and a Burma bridge.
Vermont’s most recent Zip Line Ride is located at Bromley Mountain near Peru, Vermont. They call it the Sun Mountain Flyer, and it debuted in July 2009. Many Zip Rides across the country are referred to as Canopy Rides or Canopy Tours because you cruise at the top of tree level and are rewarded with a tree canopy view. At Bromley the double zip line reaches the height of a five story building and travels at speeds of 50 MPH. Due to it’s half mile run, the Sun Mountain Flyer is New England’s longest zip line ride.
Another Green Mountain Zip Line Adventure Tour may be found in Warren at Sugarbush Mountain. At Sugarbush, you can fly down the mountain on their new 800 foot zipline, located on Lincoln Peak and landing behind the Gate House.
The sport of Zipline Riding or Canopy Riding is new, so you can still be the first of your friends to experience it and there is no better place to do that than right here in Vermont.
