Once ski season ends, a local zip line option cures your need for speed.
ZipTour Adventure at Stowe Mountain Resort is the world’s fastest and most exhilarating zip line experience. Known as the ultimate point-to-point sky adventure, the zip trolley’s sophisticated braking system allows individuals to control their line speed, which can reach 60 miles per hour. The launching point for Stowe’s 3 span ZipTour Adventure is atop the high-speed summit Gondola, near the top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak. Two side-by-side lines on each zip span allow you to soar from near the summit of Vermont’s tallest peak on a series of ziplines with a companion.
Just a short, scenic drive north on VT. 108, you’ll find the ArbortTrek Canopy Adventures at Smugglers’ Notch, which was named one of the “10 Best Zipline Courses in the USA” by USA Today, One of the “World’s Coolest Zip Lines” by Travel + Leisure, and one of the “10 Thrilling Zip Lines Around the World” by The Weather Channel. ArborTrek also has winter courses available.
