Ropes Course

Fasten yourself into a harness and take a walk high above ground on our Ropes Course. Located near the Chickadee Bowl, this ropes course might challenge your fear of heights and your sense of balance.

Minimum height: 48", Under 48" may participate if the safety harness fits correctly and they are accompanied by a 48"plus climber. Please, no sandals or open-toed footwear.

Bungee Trampoline

Come experience the fun of the Bungee Trampoline as you fly high above the Plaza Deck. The Bungee Trampoline requires no previous experience and is an awesome activity for people of all ages and abilities.

Weight requirements: 30 - 230lbs

Climbing Wall

Snowbird's four-station Climbing Wall is included in the adult and children's All-Day Activity Pass. A harness is provided and no prior climbing experience is necessary.

Weight requirements: 30 - 250lbs

Tree Climb

Who doesn’t like to climb trees? We have modernized the idea with climbing holds attached in a manner that doesn’t hurt the living trees and an automatic self-belay system.

Weight requirements: 30 - 230lbs

Vertical Drop

The Vertical Drop – is not for those afraid of heights. Climb the 50-foot green tower and decide if you’re brave enough for the Big Drop, which involves 9 feet of freefall followed by a gradual auto-belay down to the ground. Or, start smaller on the Little Drop and its 3 feet of freefall and 30 vertical feet.

Weight requirements: 44 - 285lbs

Spider Mountain

A climbing tower with an inflatable slide exit for children. Made up of multiple layers of flexible webs of flat webbing straps, this kids-only attraction is guaranteed to give your young ones a workout with a quick steep slide down as the reward for making it to the top.

Minimum height is 42 inches, maximum weight is 100lbs.

Mini Ropes Course

A parent-guided ropes course for children (ages 6 & under). Kids love this smaller version of our “big” ropes course as it has all the challenges of the adult version without the added height factor. No more than two feet off the ground above a sandbox surface means there are no harnesses and lanyards to mess with. Be sure to bring your toddler along to play in the adjacent sandbox.

Mini Tree Climb

What kid doesn’t like to climb trees? We have modernized the idea with climbing holds attached in a manner that doesn’t hurt the living trees and an automatic self-belay system. This activity is for children 22 lbs and over. Nearby trees also feature the same climbing systems for older kids and adults.
