Rapid and Rope Package – Bighorn Sheep Canyon
Adventure starts here!
Intermediate Class III-IV
In partnership with Captain Zipline Adventure Tours, we are combining our 1/2 day Bighorn Sheep Canyon whitewater rafting trip with a fun and possibly challenging aerial ropes course near Colorado Springs! You'll first enjoy a 10-mile rafting trip through the Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the morning with several exciting Class III+ rapids, including 3 Rocks, Spikebuck, and Shark's Tooth. Upon return, we'll cook you up some delicious riverside BBQ of steak, chicken, or a vegetarian option. After enjoying the spectacular views of our Cotopaxi office location, hop on US Hwy 50 for about 25 minutes to the aerial course at Captain Zipline.The Canyon Aerial Course has been built on 60-foot telephone poles with attached wooden platforms at varying heights. The platforms are connected to a multitude of challenges, so be sure to check out the 9 courses offered within the complex! The difficulty level of each course is coded similarly to the 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 uses. These harnesses, which are different than those used for ziplining, can accommodate a wider range of body shapes. Each participant must be able to reach 60 inches in height while standing flat-footed. Reasonable health and fitness is required.
