Big Sky Resort is home to the longest zipline in the Yellowstone Region. If you're looking for a breathtaking, scenic ride, check out their Nature Zipline, which is a four-line course. Each line ranges from 350' to 500' in length and 30-60 feet in the air. Frequent Big Sky skiers will love getting to experience some of their favorite ski runs in the summer. You'll start your adventure with a short hike up Moose Tracks drainage. From there, the first line will land you at the bottom of Hangmans. The second line ends near the bottom of Middle Road/Lower Calamity Jane, the third line travels across Moose Tracks and ends beside the Pacifier runout, and the fourth line crosses back over Moose Tracks, where the trip began. There is no shortage of views on this course!

Montana Whitewater is located on the Gallatin River. On their ziplining tour, you'll get to see limestone cliffs, pine forests, and a rushing river. To begin, you'll have to ascend sky bridges to a tree platform 55 ft in the air. From there, you'll get to "zips" across Gallatin River. You'll have serious fun soaring over the beautiful terrain. You may recognize the area, as the film A River Runs Through It was filmed on the river!

Yellowstone Zip offers zipline and canopy tours, right in the shadow of Yellowstone National Park. They have two zipline locations. Their Eco Zipline tour, which is located at the north park entrance, allows guests to soar over a historic mountain ranch and spend some time learning about local ecology. At their Gallatin Canyon location, guests can fly over Gallatin River and learn about local history. Both adventures are excellent and will guarantee that you leave with an expanded knowledge of Big Sky and of Montana in general.
