On this episode we?ll take a look at North America?s longest Zipline. The Sasquatch is a zipline built in 2016 that connects Whistler and Blackcomb mountains in British Columbia Canada. This 1.36 mile or 2.2 km zip line will be an experience like no other. The minimum weight per rider 65 lbs or 30 kgs to a maximum weight of 275 lbs or 125 kgs. You must be at least 10 years old to ride this mind-blowing zipline. The Sasquatch is a stand alone zipline that can be paired with the other tours ziptrek has to offer. It?s most commonly paired with the eagle tour, which features ziptrek?s 2nd longest zipline in whistler. Smoking, drugs and alcohol are not permitted on the tour at any time but you can get smashed at the bar before hand which is located only 20 feet from the meeting point, but don?t do this no drunk people on ziplines. The Sasquatch starts high up on Blackcomb Mountain at an elevation of almost 5000 feet or 1500 meters and drops steeply along the slope of Blackcomb Mountain before leaving the treeline, crossing the valley and coasting to the other side.
Getting up to the zipline is exhilarating in itself as you must ride in a bus that drives up the ski runs of the mountain. Hairpin turns with steep drops goes on for 10 minutes before you reach the start of the Sasquatch. As the zipline rounds out you are launched between the mountains. The moment the line decrease its slope the treeline ends to which you?ll be hit with a massive gust of wind spinning you wildly. As you coast downwards toward Whistler Mountain speed to continue to increase until about the halfway point. Top speeds around 87 - 93 mph or 140 - 150 km/h have been recorded. Depending on your speed The Sasquatch will last around a minute and half of constant zipping. This is about as close as it gets to the feeling of flying like a bird while still connected to the ground.
The Sasquatch can only be enjoyed during the summer months whereas the other less extreme ziplines ziptrek has, such as the eagle tour, can be enjoyed in the winter or at night time. There are also some treetop adventures to enjoy with platforms constructed way up on top of the tree with stairs and bridges connecting them.
