Angel Fire Resort, in the southern Rockies of New Mexico, has opened a multi-station zipline tour at the summit of the resort's ski mountain, which includes one blazing-fast component that has you going downhill, strapped belly down into a safety harnesses and blasting head first down the mountain. The Angel Fire Zipline Adventure Tour is the first of its kind in New Mexico, resort officials said. Another signature segment of the tour includes a tandem zipline, where you shoot down the mountain, above the forest floor some 50 stories, on a 1,600-foot tandem zipline.
The three- to four-hour adventure, costing $89 per person, starts at the 10,600-foot summit (which dwarfs the northeast's highest peak, Mount Washington in New Hampshire, with its comparatively scant 6,288 feet), though a tamer version is available for those with young families.
The zipline tour is part of the resort's new Summit Adventure Center, an activity park at the top of the ski mountain, which includes Eurobungie, mountain biking, disc golf, horseshoes and hiking. Check out the video of the head-first ride on YouTube and all that other stuff that may seem pretty laid back compared to ziplining.
