You’ll soon be able to experience the longest, most thrilling zip line on Vancouver Island


Thrill-seekers will have another way to experience beautiful British Columbia next summer when Mt. Washington Alpine Resort opens their brand new 2.3 kilometre multi-stage ZipTour, featuring a zip line with insane alpine-to-ocean views.

The Mt. Washington ZipTour is a multi-stage course where guests can explore the resort’s terrain via four zipline segments that include short scenic walks in between each. And did we mention the extra adrenaline rush of the 415-metre vertical descent?

Guests will basically be able to experience a full top to bottom mountain tour in about two hours, thanks to the layout and features of the ZipTour–which will be the longest zip line on Vancouver Island.

The design of the zip lines includes a parallel segment that means guests can race friends or simply cheer on pals while whizzing side-by-side across the stunning landscape. Plus you can control your speed, allowing for maximum enjoyment of the views.

Construction is under way already, and will continue into spring 2019. The Mt. Washington ZipTour is set to open in summer 2019.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort is located just 30 minutes from the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. While the ZipTour is a few months off, ski season will be underway soon, which is of course a whole other way to enjoy the mountains.
