Rapid and Rope Package – Bighorn Sheep Canyon
Adventure starts here!
Intermediate Class III-IV
In partnership with Captain Zipline Adventure Tours, we are offering a combination of a 1/2 day Bighorn Sheep Canyon whitewater rafting trip with a fun-filled Zipline tour. Enjoy a 10 mile rafting trip through Bighorn Sheep Canyon with several exciting Class III+ rapids like 3 Rocks, Spikebuck, and Shark’s Tooth in the morning. When you return, we’ll serve you a hearty BBQ steak, chicken, or vegetarian lunch at our private riverside picnic area. Watch for Bighorn sheep who are frequently on our Cotopaxi cliffs. You’ll have plenty of time to see the slide show of your rafting trip and eat a leisurely lunch before you head to Captain Zipline which is 25 minutes from the rafting office off of Hwy US 50. Captain Zipline’s Canyon Aerial Course is built on 60-foot telephone poles to which wooden platforms at varying heights have been attached, and these in turn are connected to all kinds of elements. This linked combination of challenge elements is tucked in the belly of the Lost Canyon and sits underneath some of the Park’s zipline cables. There are 9 different courses within the complex, all coded similar to difficulty levels used by ski resorts.
Minimum age is 8 years, minimum weight is 70 lbs., maximum weight is 250 lbs. For the Aerial Course, full-body harnesses are used; these harnesses, unlike the 'gym harnesses' used on the Zipline Tour, can accommodate a wider range of body shapes. Participant must be able to reach 60 inches while standing flat-footed. Reasonable health and fitness is required.
