Know Before You Go


Must be 16+ years old or accompanied by an adult.


Only closed toe shoes and boots are allowed on the Canopy Run Zipline Tour. No sandals or flip-flops.


Wear longer shorts, pants or leggings (for more comfort with the harness). Short-sleeved and long-sleeved shirts are also more comfortable than tanktops due to the harness. Take off all necklaces and large jewelry before arriving at Snowmass.

Sun Protection

Bring sunscreen and sunglasses to protect from the high elevation sun.


If you bring your phone, store it in a securely zipped pocket. Should you drop your phone along the way, the guides will not be able to retrieve it.


Leave backpacks and extra items in the bin provided. Your harness needs to fit securely and your hands needs to be free, so superfluous items will be stored in a bin that will be brought to your group at the end of the tour. 


Use  the restroom before you go. There are restrooms in the Lost Forest check-in area. Be sure to use the facilities before you start the tour. You won't see another restroom until the end of the tour.
