We just started ziplining at Sundance where the big draw appears to have been the drop in elevation during the zip. Are your's longer and mostly flat? Thanks
Ziptrek is home to the longest zipline in Canada & the USA, so some our lines are definitely longer. That said, there are 11 distinct ziplines spread over 3 different tours (4 if you include our 10-Line Mammoth tour, which is a combination of 2 of the permanent tours). The Sasquatch is the longest at 7,000 ft long, drops ~1,640ft over the course of the run, and is 600ft above the ground at points. It's a true monster! (and fast!).
Our lines range from 400ft - to the 7,000 ft mentioned above, with quite a variation among them (some 1,000, another 2,400 ft). We've got length, and variety.
All the lines have a drop of some kind, since they are gravity fed, and have a naturally descending slope, but some have steeper slopes than others obviously. Most drops are gradual over the entire length of the line.
Hope this helps.
We went through all 5 runs. The views are gorgeous and the workers are very helpful. The runs vary in length and are slight descents; but, you move at a pretty decent speed. The first run is a dual one so you can take pictures of each other.
The higher the elevation (up the slopes) the steeper the gradient.
I think yours might be steeper generally. Ziptrek are between the two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb
We only got through the first 3 runs (there were 5 runs on the package we were doing) but a thunder storm came in and we had to stop for safety. The 3 we did weren't very steep and not real long but I think the last 2 were going to be longer and steeper.
