A Monster Adventure in Whistler: The Sasquatch® Zipline By the Numbers

At over 2 km (1.2 miles) long, The Sasquatch® is a beast of a zipline. Connecting Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, it stands as the longest zipline in Whistler, all of Canada AND the USA.

The Sasquatch® tour takes about 1.5 hours and there’s plenty of time on the chairlift and van ride up Blackcomb Mountain to question yourself if you’re ready, and until you’re standing on the launching platform it’s hard to conceive just how massive this experience is. So to put this adventure into perspective we’ve broken it down by the numbers for you so you can prepare for the ride.

You got this!
