Whistler’s 4th Day of Christmas: Zipline

TAG: Family Time, Holidays

Posted by: Feet Banks

Editor’s Note: These are the 12 days of Christmas, Whistler Style so strap in and get ready for a week and a half of snow, excitement, twinkling lights, good times, great food and fantastic winter enjoyment. No Partridges, no pear trees (although there may be some tree skiing.) Happy Holidays.

Reindeer aren’t the only things flying over the Whistler treetops this holiday season. A Whistler Zipline tour allows you to click into a steel cable and essentially fly through the coastal rainforest treetops at speeds that can only really be described as “exhilarating plus.”

Whistler offers plenty of different zipline options but the key tour this holiday season is the Twilight Eagle Tour from Ziptrek Ecotours, which includes a 2000-foot monster zipline that drops over 20 stories. As dusk settles and the moonlight begins to hit the snowy trees, this is one way to get the adrenaline pumping and the good times rolling.

With platforms and bridges perched high in the forest between ziplines and LED lights twinkling in the night, this is really one of the most memorable holiday experiences Whistler has to off. Plus, Twilight tours are $20 less than the busier daytime trips and, with darkness come early as the shortest day of the year draws near, you can still make it back to the Village in time for dinner. Book a zipline trip here.
