Treetop Adventure

The Treetop Adventure is closed for the winter season. We will re-open for private events in May and to the public May 26, 2017. Check back to make online reservations January 1.

Think Swiss Family Robinson meets X-Games! After a safety brief you’ll clip in and ride zip lines, shimmy over suspended bridges, scramble up nets, cross swinging logs, and even ride an aerial skateboard. Kids and adults courses are available.

The Full Adult Course is a progressive course with green being easiest advancing to black being most difficult. Course elements are 12-80 feet off the forest floor, and include obstacles like wobbly bridges, swinging logs, climbing nets, flying surfboards, and 13 ziplines. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Flying Squirrel Course is designed for kids ages 7 and up.  Cables are 6-10 feet above the forest floor for all challenges except the zip line which gets as high as 20 feet off the forest floor. Highlights include suspended swinging bridges, climbing walls, nets, and a zip line. Adult chaperones are required and can easily follow a child from the ground.

How long does it take?
The entire experience for people doing the adult courses, including check in, orientation, and completing all 5 courses will take between 1.5 and 4 hours depending on your speed. The Kid’s Course is typically a 1-2 hour adventure.

Do you need any special training to use the course?
No previous climbing or ropes course experience is necessary, but you must be in good physical condition.

What should I wear?
Appropriate footwear and clothing is required: No open-toed shoes; no slip-on shoes; no loose baggy clothing or shirts wrapped around the waist; long hair must be tied back; no jewelry – especially necklaces or loose bracelets which could get caught in equipment.  Dirt and sap will likely get on you and your clothing – you may want to bring a change of clothes. Guests can be refused access to the course if they do not have appropriate clothing to do the course safely. A small water bottle attached to your harness with a carabiner is recommended.

What time do I need to arrive?
It is imperative that you check in at the Mountain Sports Center in the Rafferty Activity Center next to the Snow King Hotel at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure. Arriving on time allows for a relaxed start to your adventure. If you arrive late and miss your session, or cancel on the day of your session, there are no refunds. We will attempt to put you into a later time slot if available but there is no guarantee. Factor in time to complete the necessary paperwork, visit our retail store, make use of our facilities and ride the Rafferty Lift to the start of the course.

May I bring my camera,/camcorder/ video recorder other photo device?
Yes you can! Getting a camera into the trees is straightforward – you just need a carabiner to make sure your camera is always attached.

What if I am afraid of heights? What if I can’t finish the whole course?
You may find that with the training, coaching, and assistance from the Treetop Adventure staff you will feel confident to do things you never dreamed possible. The course is split into sections. At the end of each section you can take a short rest period, or walk back to the Rafferty if you decide to call it a day.

Should I bring snacks or water?
If possible you should bring a water bottle that can be clipped to your belt or harness (with a small carabiner). However, we do have water, water bottles, carabiners, and snacks available for purchase.

Are there guides available to help throughout the course?
There are guides stationed on the ground throughout the course to offer tips and ensure users are safe. In the event a participant finds themselves physically unable to continue in the middle of the course, guides carry rescue equipment that allows them to lower participants off on a rescue rope.

Private guides can be hired to join any unaccompanied minor, join your group to enhance your experience, or to facilitate team building or leadership development activities.

Is it dangerous? What types of safety mechanisms are in place?
This activity, like any physically challenging adventure in nature, has inherent dangers and risks that the participant must acknowledge. However, Treetop Adventures in the USA are highly regulated and all personal gear, trees, and games are inspected daily, monthly, and annually. The historic safety record of aerial courses of this type is excellent with minor injuries such as scrapes, muscle strains, twisted ankles, and shoulder injuries being our biggest concern.

Snow King’s Treetop Adventure uses a “smart belay” system used throughout the course. The smart belay system ensures user safety through a system of lanyards and double carabiners which require participants to be connected to a safety cable at all times.

Children on the Flying Squirrel Course must have an adult supervising from the ground; children under 16 on the Full Course must be accompanied by one participating adult. (3 children :1 adult). Adult Chaperone tickets are $10 and include a lift ride up and an Alpine Slide down.

What happens in inclement weather?

The course remains open in all weather conditions, except for strong winds, lightning, and extreme cold temperatures (below zero). Rain makes the course slicker and the ground muddier than usual – which all adds to the fun and adventure for many people. However, since you are beneath the forest canopy, conditions are often much drier than when standing out in an open field. Whatever the case you should dress for the weather and you may want to bring a change of clothing for the journey home.

Sometimes, unfortunately, we might need to close the Treetop Adventure for reasons beyond our control and if you have already started the tour we will do our best to find alternative dates or times for you and your party to visit us again. You will be issued a “rain check” valid for one year.

What is your cancellation policy?

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. You may change or cancel your reservation 24 hours prior to your scheduled time with no penalty and you will receive a refund or voucher for the amount you paid. If you cancel within 24 hours of your tour time there are no refunds or vouchers. Late arrivals will not be refunded or issued vouchers and will not be able to join the group. Those not meeting the weight requirements will not be refunded or receive a voucher.

We will not cancel due to rain.

Cancellations must be made by calling the activities desk 307-201-5666. We do not accept cancellations via email.
