Marble Mountain is known as the largest ski resort in eastern Canada, and boasts some of the best downhill skiing east of the Rockies. But Marble Mountain is not just a winter resort; in fact it is a four season haven for great fun, thrills, and excitement. One of the fastest growing adventure-tourism activities is zip lining, also known as the canopy tour. A canopy tour is available to anyone who wants excitement and thrills at Marble Mountain.
Originally, zip lines were forms of transportation for people in remote areas; today however they are sources of fun and excitement. Go into the lodge at Marble Mountain Resort, get your tickets, and from there, you will be driven to the top of the zip line, which is part way up the east side of Marble Mountain, and above Steady Brook Falls. For the uninitiated, , a zip line is a series of cables stretching from a high elevation to a lower elevation. Don’t worry because you are in very safe and capable hands courtesy of a great skilled crew. Your tour begins here, and you will switch onto nine different zip lines that are approximately 2000 feet long and almost 300 feet high.
Besides enjoying the exhilarating feeling of flying through the air, with adrenaline pumping through your veins, a canopy tour allows you to experience the absolute beauty of the Humber Valley. Take your camera and enjoy the spectacular sights, sounds and feelings from the canopy of the zip line. Fly above the trees, through the trees, and over one of the Humber Valley’s most amazing natural attractions – the beautiful thunderous Steady Brook falls cascading into the Steady Brook Falls gorge.
For thrills and excitement throughout the year, Marble Mountain is open for business. Adventure activities such as canopy tours will go ahead whatever the weather. Come join the crowd!
