Zipline Tours to make July exciting in Angel Fire
Tours have started for the specatular three-hour Rocky Mountain Zipline Adventure Tour in Angel Fire! The tours will start at the 10,600’ elevation summit of the Angel Fire ski mountain. This is the first and only zipline in New Mexico! On the signature segment of the tour, adrenaline seekers will fly fifty-stories above the forest floor as they traverse from peak to peak, side by side, on a 1,600' foot tandem zipline.
For the uninitiated, a zipline is a station-to-station adventure ride, which consists of a cable stretched between points of different elevations, a pulley, and a harness or bar for attaching a rider, who moves by gravity. A zipline tour connects multiple ziplines of varying lengths and descents. Ziplines are among the most popular new attractions at many destination resorts, ski mountains, and even on cruise ships.
The Zipline Adventure Tour, will start at the 10,600' summit of the ski mountain, and will proceed in a station-to-station tour around the mountaintop. The tour will include 6 separate zip line segments of varying lengths, including the one dual tandem ride. Everyone new to the sport will be offered a short "flight school" zipline near the top for lessons and practice, as well as a tandem or "racing" zipline to allow family and friends to ride side-by-side together.
