Ziplining tours have become very popular in Whistler, and if you don't mind heights or high speeds, it is an activity you must try if you come up to the resort town. The ziplining tour takes place above the Fitzsimmons Creek between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains and is part of the zipline touring and canopy walk adventures based in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
Many people who have done ziplining up at Whistler describe the experience as feeling like they were flying through the tree tops and over the rushing waters below. You can do ziplining any time of the year, during winter when there is snow on the ground as you can see here, or during the warmer summer months and feeling the sun on your face. Ziptreck Ecotours live up to their name as well in the fact that they preserve the environment and are committed to leaving the area as they found it.
Even though there is some interaction with the trees due to the building of the ziplining platforms and the lines themselves, the company wants to make ziplining a low impact company as the environment is so fragile.
You can take different kinds of ziplining tours and one doesn't include ziplining at all, it's just a walk through the tree tops. However, most of the tours do include at least one zipline and most of them take two to three hours to complete. Some of the ziplines are close to 1000 feet long as well.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/4.5, exposure time of 1/500 sec. on ISO 200, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 90mm.
