Arrive at our base 15 minutes before your start time to register and get ready.  When you enter the base, guides and base staff will help you register.  You will be asked to sign a waiver of liability (minors will need to sign their own and have a parent/guardian sign it as well) and we will check to ensure that you have proper footwear and clothing.  You will be asked to removed dangling jewelry and to wear your hair in a way that keeps it from being an entanglement hazard.

After you've registered, get into your harness and helmet and adjustments will be made to ensure a proper fit.  Then it's up to the practice zip!

A short hike from the base, our practice zip gives you a chance to get comfortable with zipping, braking and self-rescue on a short, low zip line.  Once everyone is checked out and able to safely zip, guides will take you up to the vehicles which will transport you to the top of the course.  

A 10-minute 4x4 ride brings you half a mile and 500 feet vertically uphill to the start of the course.  A short hike leads to the first take-off platform.  The first zip is slow and short to give you a chance to acclimate flying through and above the trees.  The second zip leads to a spectacular view of the Deerfield River Valley and the Northern Berkshires as you perch over the edge of the ridge on a 100+ year old pine tree.  As you travel down the course, the zips get longer and faster.  

A rappel at the end of the top section of the course leads to a water break and a short downhill hike to the start of the next section.  The lower course consists of sky bridges and longer zips that culminate your adventure in the trees.

A downhill hike leads back to base where you can share stories and memories of the trip and look at photos of yourself zipping just moments before.

Way more than your typical one-and-done zipline ride

This really is a canopy tour all over the mountainside. You do a couple short segments to get the hang of things, then the platforms get higher and the segments get longer... Duck in and out of great views and brushing past branches, a few...More
