This Pond to Face Zip Line originates from a ground level platform between the two ponds on Pioneer Road which provide a reservoir for snowmaking in the winter and trout fishing during the summer. The seated zip will cross over Pioneer Road and rise up on The Face. At the highest point this zip will be 70 plus feet above Pioneer Road. The Pioneer Flyer is a 730 foot zip which pulls guests backwards in seated duo carriages allowing 4 people to zip at one time.
