During our reopening phases, we’ve designed a tour that eliminates the need for our guides to touch the zip line gear. The device that safely allows this is called a Tweezle, hence the name for it. This tour includes an extended offroad ride, and combination of the best zip lines on all three of our tours. Been on a tour with us before? This is a completely redesigned course for these uncharted times. Come experience it for yourself.
- The Tweezle is a special tour that is modified to allow for additional distancing between guests. It is a blended tour using zips from all three of our courses. It will be using our new state-of-the-art Smart Belay System using the Tweezle key to allow guests to connect and disconnect themselves under guide supervision, thus maintaining required social distancing while on tour.
- This specially designed tour is a hybrid of our existing, award winning tours, that are specially selected to comply with our new operating standards.
*Must be at least 70-240 lbs & no taller than 6’5″. Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants must be at least 10 years old. Tours must have 2 participants to go out.
Tours meet in our office at 41 Main Street in Lincoln where our staff will orient you to your equipment and accompany you to the trailhead in our shuttle. Alpine Adventure’s zipline tours are located on a 1700′ hilltop called Barron Mountain, consisting of 300 private acres just 10 minutes south of Loon Mountain and Franconia Notch in the White Mountains.
Alpine Adventures inspects its zipline courses and trucks daily. The facility is inspected by a 3rd party and ACCT regulations annually. Cables are ½” aircraft grade steel that will hold 23,000 lbs, attached to trees and poles that are guy-wired and cemented to the ground, “where they will turn into fossils in 3000 years,” one engineer stated, attesting to its strength and durability. Guests glide through the air using a pulley, climbing harness, and dual lanyards, conforming and exceeding ACCT standards for load capacity.
Tour duration depends on the course selected and how many are in your group, usually 2-3 hours from start to finish. See tour descriptions. All tours start with welcoming you at our office on Main Street, a gear up session & a short shuttle and Off-Road Adventure ride in our 6×6 Pinzgauers to the top of the course.

We zip in most weather conditions. Dress for the elements.

Morning tours are better for summer, afternoon is warmer in the fall.
Children under 16 years of age, that meet the minimum weight restriction, must have someone at least 16 years of age participating with them. Any child under 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.
Guests may bring a camera or cell phone; however, if it is dropped it is lost. We have heard that the local bears and raccoons have gotten quite adept at taking selfies! If you want to bring your own equipment we recommend that it have a wrist strap and that it can be zipped into a pocket.
To avoid losing your valuable equipment we recommend renting a GoPro camera to capture your trip.
