Where are you located?

We have two different locations in Saskatchewan where you can unleash your inner monkey! Here they are:

Treeosix Cypress Hills (Southwest Saskatchewan) Get directions to the Cypress Hills Basecamp
We are located in the CENTRE BLOCK of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park on the SASKATCHEWAN side. To access our basecamp from the #1 Highway: turn south at junction #21, go through Maple Creek, SK, and continue on Highway #21 (straight south). Drive 28 kms and then turn right (Highway #221). Once through the park entry gate, turn left on CYPRESS DRIVE and then follow the signs that show a person zip lining. Parking is available at our Basecamp.

Treeosix Waskesiu (Northern Saskatchewan) Get directions to the Waskesiu Basecamp
We are located on Highway 264, five minutes outside of Prince Albert National Park, right inside Elk Ridge Resort. To access our basecamp from the #2 Highway: turn west at junction #264, go past McPhee Lake and make a right turn into Elk Ridge Resort (follow the signs for Treeosix Adventure Parks). Once you’ve turned into Elk Ridge Resort, take your first right and stay on that road until you see signs for our Bascamp (on the left). Parking is available at our Basecamp.

Are there age/weight limits to go on the zipline tour?

It is actually your WEIGHT that determines whether or not you can come along for this adventure!

To go on our zipline tours, you need to weigh between 50 and 250 LBS. This is not an arbitrary number; it is in place to maintain the safety of our zipline guides and guests. We have found that over the years, the above weight range ensures that the speed of entry into the landing zone at the end of each line is consistent and predictable.

Also, all children 12 years of age and younger MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian; a policy that applies to ALL zipline tours at Treeosix Adventure Parks.

Please note: one adult can accompany up to 7 kids on a single zipline tour! We just need to make sure there is at least one adult on the tour that the kids are familiar with to provide emotional support if/when needed.

How long is your zipline?

We do not offer single zipline rides; our experiences are guided tours (one to two hours long depending on group size) which incorporate multiple zip lines, platforms, ladders, stairs, and bridges. Between our two award-winning locations, we offer over 6,000 linear feet of ziplines through the two most spectacular forest ecosystems that Saskatchewan has to offer!

At Treeosix Cypress Hills, the zipline tour consists of SIX zip lines that vary in length from 100 feet to 600 feet. In addition to the six zip lines, you will also experience an 80 foot long sky bridge, three brief nature hikes and several exciting transitions from zipline platform to zipline platform, all while harnessed up and forty feet off the ground. The whole course, from start to finish, is just under 2,000 linear feet in length. Tours range in duration depending on group size and ability (a full group of 8 people will normally take 2 hours to complete the course)

At Treeosix Waskesiu, the zipline tour consists of SEVEN ziplines that vary in length from 270 feet to 700 feet. In addition to the seven zip lines, you will also experience two 150 foot long sky bridges, an electric off-road vehicle ride and several exciting transitions from zipline platform to zipline platform, all while harnessed up and forty feet off the ground. The whole course, from start to finish, is just over 4,000 linear feet in length. Tours range in duration depending on group size and ability (a full group of 8 people will normally take 2 hours to complete the course)

The best part? You are accompanied by two of our trained zipline guides the whole time who are there to help you conquer the course of your choice.

Is it safe to zipline with Treeosix?

As with any outdoor adventure activity, there are risks involved. What we can say, as the pioneer of guided, eco-friendly zipline tour providers in Saskatchewan, is that from day one we have strived to be the industry leader in providing safe and thrilling zipline tour experiences.

When businesses similar to ours open for the first time, there is a steep learning curve and a big case of the “you don’t even know what you don’t know”. When it comes to Treeosix, we have been operating for 11 seasons in Saskatchewan and have hosted over 100,000+ guests. This is important from a safety aspect because we can truly say that we have seen a lot of unique scenarios over the years. As a result, we have been diligent when it comes to adjusting and updating our policies, procedures, and even some of the physical aspects of our zipline tours, to be proactive in our risk management procedures.

Most importantly though, when assessing the safety of the adventures we provide, it is important to realize that the experience of your zipline guides is also crucial. At Treeosix, our guides have a combined 50+ seasons of experience operating and accompanying guests on our zipline tours. They receive 160-hours of training on course/site-specific operational procedures which are up to date as per the Association of Challenge Course Technology (the international governing body of all commercial zipline, challenge course, and aerial park operations) prior to ever guiding a tour on their own.

Our courses and the zipline gear you will be using during your visit are inspected prior to the season each year by an independent third-party zipline inspector/builder accredited by the Association of Challenge Course Technology. During these inspections (which aren’t cheap! haha), the inspector ensures that our policies, procedures, and documentation are up-to-date, our courses (platforms, lines, connections, and structures) are all is good repair and identifies anything that we may need to update. If there is something that requires some attention from a safety aspect, we are required to make the necessary improvements before the inspector signs off giving us the ability to operate another season.

Lastly, we have won numerous, credible, industry awards both provincially and nationally, including the 2014 Canadian Tourism Small to Medium-Sized Business of the Year Award. We are also highly reviewed on TripAdvisor by our past guests. We know that may not mean much to some people when it comes to safety, but we hope that it puts you at ease knowing that we are one of the most respected operations in our industry. Find details on all of our past awards here: https://www.treeosix.com/who-we-are/#awards)

If all of that does not put you at ease, we will provide you with a confirmation of our up-to-date insurance, inspection report, and/or guide certifications in advance of booking an adventure upon request!

Long story short, here is what you want you want to look into when selecting an zipline tour operator to embark on an adventure with, regardless where you are in the world:

  • Do they have up-to-date liability insurance and have they had their zipline course and safety equipment inspected and certified annually by a third party inspector who is accredited by the Association of Challenge Course Technology?
  • How many years of experience do they have in the industry? How long have they been in operation?
  • What certifications do their zipline guides possess? How important is staff training and development to their business?
  • Do they have comprehensive and fair booking, payment, and cancellation policies in place?
  • What awards/recognition have they received and/or how have their past guests rated their experiences?

You will find all the answers to the questions above as you browse through our site. If you need anymore information, please let us know! :)

How far in advance do I need to reserve my zipline tour?

You can book as far in advance as you would like provided that you know the date and time you wish to go!

At times, you may need to make a reservation two or three days in advance of departure to ensure a spot. However, there are some popular weekends during the summer which can be completely booked up to two weeks in advance.

The moral of the story: advanced booking is recommended, so please check availability online prior to making a day trip!

Do I need to sign a waiver prior to participating in the experiences you offer?

Yes. All participants must arrive at our basecamp locations at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled activity.

The purpose of this early arrival is to allow time to read, understand, and sign our waiver. By signing our waiver, you will waive your right to sue us and exercise other legal rights.
