Ropes Challenge Courses

New Ropes Courses

Test your skills as you conquer one of the three new ropes courses, featuring rope bridges, swinging logs, cargo nets, ladders, walkways and other climbing features, all within the safety of a harness. Each course varies in difficulty and provides a different experience, like the unique tree-based ropes course that tests limits while climbing over and around trees. While each course is self-guided, professional staff are on-sight to serve as experiential guides during this challenging adventure.

All activities are weather-dependent, please call 1800-Heavenly for the most current information.

What to Wear

While navigating through the ropes challenge courses you will be climbing up, on, over, through various features. We recommend you wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move easily. Please also remember to wear closed-toe athletic shoes and dress in layers. The mountain air will be cooler at the top and on the observation deck than in town.
