The Sasquatch Zipline

In the weeks leading up to our yearly Automattic Grand Meetup, people organize all kinds of activities. I’ve always wanted to do a zipline tour and I was lucky to get my name on the list early enough to secure a spot. There were 2 different tours available and I picked one out of the blue because of the date and time.

THE SASQUATCH® IS THE LONGEST ZIPLINE IN WHISTLER, ALL OF CANADA, AND THE USA.

I didn’t even realize what I was signing up for! While the total tour time is 1.5 hours, the estimated time on the zipline is 90-100 seconds. The single line spans over 2 km, reaching speeds of 100+ km/h!

Talk about a rush! It was much harder to spin around than I expected, so once I got myself situated I spent a lot of time with my hands on the handles.
