Heavenly Ski Resort Scheduled Zip Line Open
A two cable, 3,325 foot long ZipRider at the Heavenly Ski Resort at Lake Tahoe, California. The ride starts at the top of the Tamarack chair lift and land at the "Adventure Peak" located at the top of the Heavenly Gondola. This ride drops over 500 vertical feet at an average percent grade of 15.8%, and at its highest takes guests on a 50-mile-an-hour thrill ride from the top of Tamarack Express back to the top of the Gondola. The Heavenly Sky Flyer is the longest zip line in the lower 48 U.S. states. For people who don't ski or snow board this will be a fun way to enjoy the thrill of zooming down the mountain at 50 miles an hour.
