Sasquatch, the feared hairy beast that supposedly roams the mountains of North America, has been spotted in Whistler, Canada.
Pictures show that the monster looks suspiciously like a zip-line.
In fact, it is a zip-line -- the Sasquatch zip-line. Soon it will bridge two mountains in Whistler.
At 7,000 feet long -- remember, a mile is 5,280 feet — the zip-line clearly is a monster, so its name is appropriate.
Riders will launch from Blackcomb Mountain and whiz across a valley to Whistler Mountain.
Whistler, which hosted some events during the
Sasquatch will welcome its first visitors in late July, although a specific date has yet to be announced.
At times, guests will soar 600 feet above the ground. A dual zip-line will allow spouses, friends, kindred thrill seekers to ride side-by-side.
The zip-line will roughly parallel the route taken by the Peak 2 Peak gondola as it travels between the two mountains.
Tickets, in U.S. dollars, will cost about $96.50 for adults and about $80.30 for ages 6 to 14. Tickets will be available once an opening date is announced.
The zip-line operator offers other adventures in Whistler. The original, the Ziptrek Bear Tour, incorporates five zip-lines and four treetop bridges. It's priced the same as Sasquatch.
