Whistler’s Superfly Ziplines
Flying down the hills with Whistler’s Superfly Ziplines is a fantastic year-round activity. Tours with the company usually run in both winter and summer, rain or shine.
Regardless of the season, ziplining is a great way to get outside and “fly” through Whistler’s backcountry. It’s also an amazing way to get an adrenaline rush and enjoy world-class views.
The tours at Superfly Zipline consist of four ziplines running back and forth between Cougar and Rainbow Mountain.
Where are Whistler’s Ziplines?
Superfly Ziplines is located just 10 minutes north of Whistler Village which is less than a 2-hour drive from Vancouver in good traffic. The zipline tours begin at Cougar Mountain Basecamp which can be found at the end of Cougar Mountain Road.
In addition to Superfly Ziplines, Cougar Mountain Basecamp is also home to Vallea Lumina, Whistler’s Aerial Obstacle Course and Whitewater Rafting.
About the Ziplines
The ziplines at Superfly are unique because they run side-by-side. This means guests can share the experience with someone at the same time! Side-by-side ziplines are great for nervous riders as there can be someone there to do it with you. Guests can even hold hands on the last zipline!
At Superfly Ziplines there are a total of four ziplines. The longest cable stretches 1.3 kilometres across the forest, and the fastest reaches speeds of up to 100 kilometres an hour!
To get to the start of the course you get a ride in an all-terrain vehicle. That in itself is a lot of fun!
The first zipline is the highest at 1.2 km and over 600 feet above the ground. It has amazing views and the trip down lasts for about a minute. The second course is the longest at 1.3 km. The third is the fastest and closer to the trees. The fourth is the shortest, slowest and least high, but still really good. The last of the four lines brings you back to basecamp.
The ziplines at Superfly use a harness system. This means that there are no uncomfortable straps that dig in as you slide along. The harness holds you in a comfortable reclined position that also prevents you from spinning backwards. At the end of each zipline the harness has an automatic braking system so visitors can just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
