Ziplining in de winter is echt zalig! Het is tof om eens iets anders te doen dan skiën en de uitzichten zijn fantastisch! De begeleiding is enthousiast en vriendelijk. Top-ervaring!

Greetings Vivianne, Let me attempt to address all your questions. Firstly, The Sasquatch has 2 options. The Line Experience, and The Tour version (which is The Sasquatch + The Eagle Tour, so 6 ziplines in total). The Sasquatch Line Experience takes 1.5 hours to complete. It starts with an open air chair lift ride (Wizard chair) to a staging area on Blackcomb Mountain where guests get harnessed, & helmeted. Then a van ride to the actual launch. Guests then launch the actual zipline. The line itself is over 2 kms long, but given the speeds you travel while zipping, it is completed in about 90 seconds (on average), so approximately 1.5 minutes. Post zipping, there is a short trail walk to the Whistler Gondola, where guests download to the main Village (about a 15 minute ride). So, to your question about "what are you doing the rest of the time" (besides actually zipping), much of it is spent accessing the line (as described) given it launches quite high up on Blackcomb mountain. That said, during the journey to the launch, and the download (during the exit) - guests are able to take-in and enjoy the spectacular views and surroundings. They also engage with our guides, and can view the interpretive signage that is on both decks (launching & landing). Many people take photos during those periods, but also watch their fellow guests launching & landing during the zipping portion. Group sizes for individual tour times is 8 - 10 people. On The Sasquatch Tour, after zipping the Sasquatch Line, you don't download, but proceed onto the other ziplines (the Eagle Tour) - which also visits other viewing decks and suspension bridges in the old-growth forest canopy. That tour takes 4.5 hours to complete, and it does involve some more light trail walking (between zips) and stair climbing. 2 Guides accompany the guests throughout the whole tour. In regards to your frozen shoulder, it's hard for me comment on what the true impact may be, or your limitations with it. And if it will still even be an issue next August (2016)? What I can say, is that it's not essential to have full and proper use of both arms to be able to zip our ziplines, but it's probably preferred for most individuals. Our custom harnesses are designed so you can zip "hands free" if you so choose, and our proprietary braking system doesn't require the guest to do anything during the landing of any of our ziplines. Hope this helps, and we look forward to seeing you next August. Sincerely, Warrick
