CATAMOUNT ZIP TOUR
About Catamount Zip Tour
Longest Zipline Span in the USA!
The Catamount Zip Tour is unlike any other zipline tour in the area. This two-hour outdoor experience includes three dual-zipline spans and a chairlift ride up the mountain. Our unique braking system allows you to control your speed — race each other down our dual-spans at speeds of up to 55+ mph, or take it nice and slow while soaking in the magnificent views of the Berkshires and the Hudson Valley. The final span of the tour is dubbed the “Cata-monster” and is the longest zipline span in the USA at just over 1 mile long.

You should remove any dangling jewelry and tie long hair back. You will be asked to remove all items from your pockets before going on the tour. If you plan on bringing a camera, smaller cameras with a lanyard are best. If you bring your phone to take pictures you run the risk of dropping or otherwise damaging your phone. Items you bring on the tour may get lost along the course. Please leave valuables in the car.
You may leave personal belonging in the Zip Tour room after getting on your harness - but we suggest all valuables be left in your vehicle. All items kept on you should be in a zippered pocket or securely fastened to yourself. Catamount is not responsible for any lost or damaged items.
Our ziplines use a unique braking system that allows the user to control their own speed. Speeds on the Catamonster zipline can reach in excess of 55 miles per hour.
