Add A Little Zip To Your Trip
- August 09th, 2012
Zipping through the air at 200 feet on a 1,500 or 2,000 foot zip line might be a little intimidating at first, but it’s worth it to take in the views, experience nature, and have an adventure like no other.
Sky Valley Zip Tours
If you’re looking for a true canopy tour, Sky Valley Zip Tours is the place to be.
Co-owner and manager Jack Sharp says the canopy tour at Sky Valley is one of the only true canopy tours in the High Country because it keeps zippers in and above the tree canopy in an ecosystem most people don’t get to experience, allowing them to connect with nature on a personal level.
In addition to nine zip lines, Sky Valley also features a 40-foot high cliff jump, 50-foot high tree jump, and a 120-foot long swinging bridge over a lush waterfall. Their longest and highest zip line, accurately nicknamed “Big Momma” boasts a height of 300 feet, a length of 1600 feet, and gives the zipper a view of the entire valley. The following zip line is equally thrilling at over 240 feet high, 1400 feet long, and ending on a rock face you then have to jump from. It’s easy to forget you are only two and a half miles from Boone and four and half miles from Blowing Rock.
