Urban winter ziplining offered at the Old Port
Montreal Zipline allows visitors to glide across the port in up to -20 degree-weather
You don’t have to wait until the summer to enjoy ziplining in the city. Until the regular summer schedule resumes in May, Montreal Zipline will be offering kids and adults the opportunity on weekends to take in an aerial view of the city while gliding over the Old Port.
In order to ensure the structure is safe for winter, Montreal Zipline president Samuel Cadotte says they received the stamp of approval from three different engineering firms, after making a few modifications. Ziplining activities will be cancelled if the weather dips below -20 degrees or if there is a snow storm.
Cadotte says the decision to offer their services in the winter was prompted by customer demand. There is no age or height requirement to zipline, but users should weigh between 50 and 250 pounds. A trip down the wire generally lasts about 45 seconds.
The zipline is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday during the winter from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. From May to October, it is open seven days a week. It costs $19.99 for adults and $16.99 for kids 12 and under. There is also a family package for two adults and two children for $64.99. For groups larger than 10 people, reservations are required.
