Ziplining in Whistler

Whistler , British Columbia
Canada
Concierge.com's insider take:

Miners employed cable-pulley travel as far back as the mid–19th century, yet the technology has only recently been enlisted by eco-tourism outfitters, such as Whistler's Ziptrek Ecotours (604-935-0001; www.ziptrek.com). For around $90 U.S., Ziptrek escorts you to a platform high in an old-growth fir, secures you via a climbing harness to a wheeled pulley, then wings you along a series of ten cables, totaling 7,680 feet, at speeds of up to 45 mph. It's thrilling, and scenic to boot: You're flying hundreds of feet above churning, glacier-fed Fitzsimmons Creek. By the final cable, increasingly comfortable customers pull the "upside-down Jesus": inverted body with outstretched hands.
