One of the fastest growing adventure sports is Zip riding or Zip-Line Riding. This awe-inspiring sport involves riding or “zipping” through the woods on a “zip line” that is secured to your body. The sport can be enjoyed by all ages, involves little equipment, and is truly exhilarating. Participants aged 8 to 80 describe the experience as “soaring, awesome, cool”.
New Hampshire’s most recent Zip Line Ride is located at Bretton Woods at the Mount Washington Resort on Route 302. They call it Bretton Woods Canopy Tour. Many Zip Rides across the country are referred to as Canopy Rides or Canopy Tours because you cruise at the top of tree level and are rewarded with a tree canopy view. At Bretton Woods your line reaches 1000 feet of elevation, the tour takes nature-lovers and thrill-seekers across a series of tree-top zip lines and is the longest zip line canopy tour in New England. The Bretton Woods Canopy Tour provides exceptional views and the tour concludes with the Williwaw Racing Zip, a dual, side-by-side zip line that leads right to the base area of Bretton Woods.
The Bretton Woods Zip Line Tour is unique in that once on the tour, an Adventure Guide describes the native flora and fauna, and tells about the area’s natural history and White Mountain lore.
Another White Mountain Zip Line Adventure Tour may be found in Lincoln at Alpine Adventures Outdoor Recreation. This company has been at the forefront of outdoor adventure fun in the Granite state for decades and the Alpine Zip Line Tour is a recent addition.
Yet another NH Zip ride location is in the White Mountains at Wildcat Ski Area. Wildcat calls it the ZipRider™. Soar like an eagle 1/2 mile over tree tops, ski trails, and a river, on a zip-line cable at 45 miles per hour. The Wildcat ZipRider™ now offers 4 cable lines and is open for daily operations (weather permitting) through mid-October. Ticket sales begin at 9:30 a.m. and rides begin at 10:00 a.m. at the ticket office of Wildcat Ski Area.
The sport of Zipline Riding or Canopy Riding is new, so you can still be the first of your friends to experience it and there is no better place to do that than right here in New Hampshire.
