Nature abounds with magnificent landmarks and terrain that most people never get to fully experience beyond the surface. For instance, the Sierra Blanca Mountains might be a pretty sight to see from a photo or from a distance, and hiking in this terrain might be a fun way to spend time, however, nothing beats the unique, gorgeous perspective and the sheer thrill of riding a zipline across the mountains at 11,489 feet. Ski Apache’s Wind Rider Zip Tour can provide you with such an exciting adventure.

A Memorable Experience

There’s no better experience than riding a zipline through the Sierra Blanca Mountains. Ziplining will give you a unique perspective of the natural scenery provided by the gorgeous mountain range you cannot get anywhere else. When you use one of the world’s longest ziplines, which reaches over 8,900 feet in length and provides around 1.5 hours of ziplining time, you will have plenty of time to take in the beauty and atmosphere associated with the Sierra Blanca Mountains.

At the same time, ziplining can also give you quite a rush as you master the heights to see the mountains yourself. With elevations of 11,489 feet and a speed of up to 65 mph, the thrill of using the highest zipline in the United States is unmatched. Ziplining is an adventure you can enjoy by yourself or you can share with your friends and family.  

Zipline Safety

Of course, to successfully zipline through the mountains, you must follow basic safety procedures and use the appropriate safety gear. You will need to wear appropriate clothing for outdoor activities in the current weather and be sure to wear closed-toe shoes. When you participate, you will wear a tight-fitting harness that attaches to the zipline trolley’s tether, and a helmet. Most trolleys have two tethers for extra safety. You will also receive some helpful information by qualified instructors on how to use the trolley handle to adjust the trolley’s speed, as well as hand signals to know when to speed up, slow down, or stop the trolley.

Make sure to learn these instructions to pass the required demo zipline test and operate the zipline trolley properly. With the right safety equipment and effective lessons, you can ensure an exciting and safe ziplining adventure. Make sure to make your reservations in advance by calling 575-464-3633.
