Spring has finally arrived!

It took its time getting here this year, but Spring has finally arrived at ArborTrek Canopy Adventures at Smugglers' Notch and there's no better time to go zip lining.  The canopy tour survived days of persistent high winds and record-setting rains this April and is ready for the summer.  The entire valley is a brilliant green now.  The trees are all budding out, wild flowers are popping up their colorful heads, and once open views and vistas are being replaced by dense green foilage. 

"It is the dynamic nature of the forest that the course traverses through that really sets this tour apart from the competition.  The transformation that takes place to the course each season is amazing.  It is almost as if there are four different courses here," says Smith, zip line canopy tour designer and President of ArborTrek Canopy Adventures. 

Smith explains that over the next few weeks, the course will become greener and it will feel faster and more intimate.  While there will still be breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains at some places on the course, the focus will be much more on the area of the forest where guests are situated and not on the distance views.  "In the winter, platforms are visible at the end of most of the cables when you are clipped in.  This will not be true in a few weeks.  The canopy will become more dense and guests will feel as if they are flying through organic tubes cut in to the canopy.  Guests will just need to trust us that there is an end to the cable, because the end will not be visible for much of the traverse.  The dense canopy also highlights the babbling brook which the course follows.  In the winter, the brook can be all but lost at times.  Not now.  It's really moving. "
