***This review is as a watcher of those who are zip lining.***First off it's a 12 mile winding, twisting, don't look down, look out, no passing, no railing in some spots drive up the mountain.(elevation 11,000+ft)(zip line start elevation (12,000+ft) It is a beautiful drive. As a watcher you have to ride the gondola up the mountain, so purchase your ticket($18) at the ticket counter. Once at the top take in the view. For me it was serene. The trail to get to the zip line starting point is behind the ski patrol station. Hike up that trail another 1,000 feet or so and you will come upon the starting point. Here's the important zip line information as given from one of the guides to the riders: This zip line is currently the highest starting point = 12,000 ft. Skydiving starts at 10,000 ft. The zip line is 1 mile. You will be traveling 70 - 80mph. You will reach the end in 30 seconds. When you clear the trees start breaking and look for our hand signals. I got an adrenaline rush just listening to him. The parking lot where you parked, ya, well you can't see it from the top, it's covered by the all the pine trees. The wooded platform deck you passed entering the parking lot, yep that's the end of the line. We saw 8 riders zip down the mountain, let me tell you that was the longest 30 seconds that was over so quickly. It was so cool to watch..
