ACE’s Winter Zipline Canopy Tour


The Appalachian Mountains here in beautiful Southern West Virginia subtly transform from a gorgeous, colorful painting to a white wonderland every winter. While Oak Hill, WV, doesn’t accumulate a tremendous amount of precipitation each winter, our mountains and valleys are exceptionally beautiful, especially after a fresh snowfall or hoarfrost. Just because the temperatures dip into the 30s doesn’t mean ACE Adventure Resort isn’t itching to take eager adventurers on the only zipline tour with views of the New River Gorge. Throw on your favorite jacket and embark on a winter zipline canopy tour that you’ll never forget!

Zipline Canopy Tour

You may not realize it now, but there are several things to do in WV during the wintertime, including a breathtaking zipline canopy tour at ACE Adventure Resort. As with all ziplines, remember to dress accordingly and check weight requirements beforehand. Right now, our ziplines can only be experienced for those between 70 and 250 pounds. There’s never a wrong season to zipline through the New River Gorge, but many of our guides prefer the wintertime. There’s less traffic on the lines, the air is unquestionably crisper, and the mountains are mystifyingly beautiful.

Best Zips

Our zipline canopy tour features nine tandem zips, two suspension bridges, and a 55-foot-tall tree house. One of the most popular ziplines at ACE Adventure Resort is Rigor Mortis, a speedy 680-foot-long ride, 100 feet above the Earth. You’ll reach speeds of 40 mph along the beautiful New River. Sunshine is beloved by many because it provides magnificent views of the ghost town of Thurmond and the ruins of Fire Creek Coal & Coke Company. Sunshine set a world record years ago as 183 people zipped down the valley in one hour. The Racer is the perfect zipline for a friendly heat. This 270-foot-long tandem zipline lets two friends race, side-by-side, all the way to the finish line. Bragging rights are on the line!
