When can I go Ziplining?

The Mountaintop Zipline in Buena Vista will open between the end of April and early May and stay open through Labor Day. During the summer, there are zipline trips hourly starting at 8:00 am at both locations.
Will there be a guide on my Colorado Zipline Tour?
Ziplining tours are fully guided tours that utilize zip lines to travel from tree to tree. Basic zip line skills will be taught prior to your actual tour in the “ground school.” Guides may also teach you additional techniques throughout the zipline tour.
Will I have to climb platforms during the zipline tour?
AVA zipline courses are integrated into the mountains. You will take a truck up to the trail and will have short hikes in-between the different lines. Ziplining has been described as being as close as you can get to flying across the top of the forest.
What is the weather policy for zipline tours?
Trips will still go out in slightly adverse conditions. The only time trips are canceled due to high winds/lightning. Dress in layers and bring a raincoat as afternoon storms are not a rare occurrence in Colorado.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Every participant is required to sign a Liability and Release Waiver and assume all risks involved while on tour — Participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
