Base Area Tour

Base Area Tour

Just want to try it out?

Zip the two-line course at the base of the ski area twice to get an exciting taste of zip lining before tackling our larger lines.

The Base Area Tour is right in the flats at the bottom of Berkshire East Ski Area. This tour is easily watchable from the Main Lodge and consists of three elevated platforms connected by two sets of dual racing cables, 380' and 570' long.

This course provides a perfect introduction to zipping at an affordable price for those not sure about our longer tours, families with kids, or those short on time.

Experience Details

Please check-in with zip line customer service in the Main Lodge at Berkshire East Ski Area, 30 minutes ahead of time to ensure all group details are taken care of. 

Here you will meet your guides and get suited up in the necessary gear for your experience — zip line harness, helmet, lanyard, and trolley. 

After a short walk from our base lodge to the first platform, guests will receive a second orientation on zip line technique.  

The Base Tour is an accessible option for almost all levels of fitness and ability, though some stairs are necessary to reach the tour platform.

If you are with a large group looking with limited time, or are interested in combining an experience with the Mountain Coaster or Adventure Park, the Base Tour is perfect for you and your group.

This is an extremely popular option for larger groups, like scout groups, schools, kids camps, and youth groups. Visit the group tab to learn about scheduling a zip-line adventure group. Base Area Details
