Heres the deal.. great mountain and great activities but $112 for a half day of ziplining. That just makes no sense to me. I had a coupon and went for free. I could NEVER feel comfortable paying $112

The hike to the last zip on the Valley Jump tour was a little strenuous. It is about 300 ft elevation, but well worth the hike.
