Zipline in Lake Tahoe

Heavenly Resort in Lake Tahoe claims to have the longest zip line in the United States, stretching 3,300-feet. Be prepared for a fast, steep descent because the 525-foot vertical drop matches that of the Space Needle. The zipline is open year-round, so whether there’s snow on the ground or the slopes are summer-green, you’re guaranteed spectacular views as you descend.

The Heavenly Flyer zipline propels riders over treetops at speeds up to 50 miles per hour – and the total ride time is about 80 seconds. With two separate lines, you could even zip down side-by-side with a friend.

Weather permitting, the Heavenly Flyer zipline is open 10:30 am to 5 pm in the summer and 10am to 3 pm in the winter. During the winter months, the Heavenly Flyer is offered at Adventure Peak, with other snowsport activities including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, sledding and snowbiking. Summertime, you can fly down the Heavenly Flyer zipline in between scaling a 25-foot-high multi-ability climbing wall or taking a hike on the trails threading the resort.

Rides are $30 ($20 for passholders who present an active Heavenly season pass). Lift tickets and sightseeing tickets are sold separately and are required to take the Heavenly Gondola then the Tamarack Express chairlift to reach the zipline’s Launching Pad.

For more information visit Heavenly Resort.  And I can tell you from experience, nothing gives you a rush like going down a fast zip line, even though it’s much safer than the car ride to get there.
