Winter Ziptreking in Whistler

Winter Ziptreking in Whistler

Taking #ziplining one step further is Ziptrek in #Whistler, #BritishColumbia. It's a gravity-fueled, #active ride over Fitzsimmons Creek and snow-covered trees in the #Winter. My favorite part was taking the ride upside down for an added adrenaline kick!


Three Words: Zip-lining. Winter. Upside-Down. Awesome.

I’ve been zip-lining more times than I can keep track of any more, but it’s always been pretty much the same experience. A picturesque tree-top setting with a quick rush of adrenaline on a warm sunny day. Well, zip-lining, you’ve met your match; enter Ziptrek.

For starters, it was December. December in Canada. December in Canada in the snowy mountains of British Columbia. I had never been zip-lining in temperatures less than 25C, and for some reason had it in my head that it wasn’t a possibility. But, why not? The fact that I was flying through snow covered pines above the distant Fitzsimmons Creek layered in white made the experience into even more of an adventure. I didn’t feel cold beneath my winter gear (which made it more comfortable to wear the harness) and nearly squealed when it actually started to snow on us.

But, the best part of the entire day? Zip-lining upside down.

We eased into the tricks gradually, sitting normally for the first couple of lines, going hands-free and even began jumping backward. Finally, at the last line our guide asked if we wanted to try hanging upside down. Um, yes. All the yes. With a quick instruction, I was first up and stepped off the ledge, facing backward once more. As soon as my foot left the platform I pulled my knees toward my chest, bent my body in half, shifted in my harness and kicked my feet up toward the sky. From there, I could release the rest of my body to hang down toward the nothingness below, where I reached my hands and let out a strange, excited noise that sounded something like “Eeeeeeee!!”
