2. See the Beauty of Spring

3. The Weather 

You’ve probably been warned of Colorado’s unpredictable weather, but it isn’t all bad. Going from 60 degrees and sunny one day to below freezing and storming the next might not sound ideal, but it really means you can maximize your trip. One day you could be on a zipline and the next you could be skiing.

4. Combo Skiing 

Piggybacking off the last point, combining your zipline trip and ski trip into one has a few benefits. Spring skiing can be easier, with softer snow and warmer temperatures it can make it a bit less harsh on any newbies.

5. Less Crowds 

Overall, Colorado’s spring is our least popular season. With rafting in the summer, skiing in the winter, and leaf watching in the fall, spring can be one of most mellow times in Colorado. If you were hoping for a serene ziplining trip, going during spring is ideal.

6. Better Prices 

With spring being the off season in Colorado, you might be able to catch some deals. Hotels, ride services, and even ski resorts may lower their prices during the slow spring months. Even our zipline adventures have lower rates in the spring!

7. Soak in a Hot Springs 

What better way to end a day of heart pumping ziplining than soaking in a relaxing hot spring? Both of our ziplining locations are in close proximity to some enjoyable Hot Springs. In Idaho Springs, about a mile from the zipline course, there is the Indian Hot Springs which offers several soaking/spa options. Outside Buena Vista there are the Cottonwood Hot Springs and the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, both offer a wonderful way to unwind.
