More detailed description >

Experience the thrill of a lifetime at the 'Top of the World' when you combine a high performance snowmobile tour and a high altitude zip line tour near Leadville, CO.

The adventure begins when you climb aboard a top-of-the-line Polaris 550 snowmobile for a 2-hour high performance ride through powder-filled back country bowls and unrivaled terrain. Your tour guide will introduce you to the majesty of the Rocky Mountains at elevations from 11,000 to 12,000 feet at the 'Top of the World.'

Next, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch served in a cozy yurt with stunning views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, 2 of the tallest mountains in the United States.

Then, it's time for zip lining! You will travel to the first zip line area on steep winding mountain trails by snow cat. You will receive gloves, helmet and other equipment and will begin the journey on a short practice zip line before departing from the first platform at 11,200 feet.

The course has five zip lining sections; each offering different elements of speed, height and terrain. The cables run up to 850 feet and some are more than 300 feet off the ground.

The course features the latest technology including double cables for safety and faster zips with hands free "zip stop" technology. On four sections of the course, guests can fly side-by-side on twin lines.

This is truly an adventure you will remember for a lifetime for the thrills and the magical views of the snowy alpine tundra in the shadow of the Continental Divide.

"Our guide Derick was rude and berated my wife in staying with the group when she went off the trail (her first time on a sled) and for having to go slow to let us catch up; we had stopped for the couple ahead of us, who was stopped on the trail. The guy's wife went six feet off the trail so we couldn't stay with the group. He did say go at a pace you are comfortable with and do our best to keep up! She also had an issue with her head band slipping into her eyes, and stopped to safely fix it; when we tried to signal him, he took off while we stayed to fix it. Overall he made it a most unpleasant time! However the zip line crew was the best!! "
