Treeosix Adventure Parks

About Treeosix Adventure Parks

The bona fide pioneer of guided, eco-friendly zip line tours in the forests of Saskatchewan.

Treeosix Adventure Parks (formerly Eco-Adventures) was founded by Jori Kirk in 2010. Our first location was created in the heart of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park in southwest Saskatchewan. At that moment in time, our company was one of the first three companies in Canada who were unleashing the joy of zip lining to visitors from all walks of life! As our popularity grew (and as we improved our experience), we embarked on a new adventure in northern Saskatchewan. Our second location brought some adrenaline to Waskesiu Lake and the beautiful Elk Ridge Resort in northern Saskatchewan in 2015.

Between our two award-winning locations, we offer over 6,000 linear feet of zip lines through the two most spectacular forest ecosystems that Saskatchewan has to offer; the boreal forest of northern saskatchewan and the lodgepole pine forest of the Cypress Hills! Pair that with our amazing ship’s ladders, rope ladder, heart-pumping sky bridges, parachute simulators (Cypress Hills), a giant swing (Waskesiu), and the most experienced/hilarious zip line tour guide team in province and you’ve got a recipe for an adrenaline pumping, nature-loving, authentically Saskatchewanian good time!

The Owners

Treeosix Adventure Parks is owned and operated by Jori & Emma Kirk, who are both born and raised Saskatchewanians. Jori grew up on a farm in Climax, SK and completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing & Tourism from the University of Calgary in 2008. Emma (maiden name Stark) grew up in Prince Albert, SK and completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Management from the University of Saskatchewan in 2014. Jori & Emma along with their four Norwegian Elkhound dogs spend the summers living on site, ensuring operations run smoothly, and exploring everything that Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park and Prince Albert National Park / Waskesiu have to offer!

Our Mission

From the very beginning, this has been Treeosix’s mission:

To provide our guests with the opportunity to connect with Nature in exciting ways while ensuring that our experience is sustainable, educational, and eco-friendly in order to preserve our outdoor playground for generations to come.

We’ve received numerous industry awards over the years (both provincially and nationally) and have earned a reputation as a tourism operation that takes pride in doing the little details that make a big difference. Since incorporating in 2010, we’ve hosted over 80,000+ guests at our sites, refined our operations each year to stay on top of the latest international safety standards, and worked really hard to retain the best zip line guides in the province to ensure consistency in our adventures.

We also take great pride in supporting the local areas in which we operate through donations and staff-driven initiatives. Building and being a part of the community is extremely important to us.

At the end of the day, it comes down to this: It’s all about having fun, pushing your boundaries, and finding your happy dance. That’s what we believe.

What’s behind the name “Treeosix Adventure Parks”?

Formerly Cypress Hills Eco-Adventures Ltd, we officially changed our name in 2017.

This name change came about to clarify and reflect that we aren’t just a zip line tour (although our zip line tours are wicked fun) as our basecamp activities have grown substantially, thanks to feedback from our customers and reinvesting year after year. In reality, we are a true “adrenaline park” with many activities at our basecamps that are designed to push your boundaries and help you find your happy dance!

Here’s the skinny on our why we call ourselves; Treeosix Adventure Parks:

  • Treeosix: our name is a reflection of our playful attitude as well as the province we call home. We’ve been locally owned and operated in Saskatchewan (area code: 306 aka “Three-Oh-Six”) since our first year of operation in 2010.
  • Adventure Parks: Our locations and the number of activities at each have grown substantially over the past six years. We are now more of a “park full of adrenaline pumping activities” where people can come play, spend an afternoon, and enjoy the outdoors while participating in activities that push their boundaries and help them find their happy dance.

Community Involvement & Eco-initiatives

We are firm believers that parks and outdoor spaces are here for people to experience. With that said, we understand that we share sensitive spaces with mother nature and are aware that as with any outdoor activity, we leave a footprint. That’s why we developed a list of priorities to ensure our organization leads the way from an environmental standpoint in our industry.

The following priorities ensure we are supporting organizations that strive to achieve the same environmental goals and that all operational decisions we make take the environment into account, first and foremost. Here they are:

  • Environmental education initiatives
  • Environmental protection initiatives
  • Environmental sustainability initiatives
  • Initiatives which encourage youth to be active and explore the outdoors while directly incorporating any of the above three priorities

Make sure you take some time to look around during your next visit to one of our locations. You’ll definitely see the above priorities in action! Here are a few examples:

  • Our trail systems are designed with considerations of drainage and erosion in mind.
  • We make use of existing park trails whenever possible and clearly identify trails and viewing areas which we encourage spectators to stay on while they view the zip line canopy tour from the ground.
  • Our zip line tours are designed to blend in with the surroundings.
  • The only permanent infrastructure components on our entire site that make intrusions into the forest floor are the poles on our zip line tours and our septic tanks – everything else is completely removable!

Our “We Bike to Work” Policy

In addition to the above efforts, we encourage our staff to reduce their environmental impact each day and be an ambassador for green initiatives. As of May 1st, 2012, all staff members living within the Cypress Hills Core Area or Elk Ridge Resort Area for the summer are required to walk or bike from their accommodations to our basecamp for work each day. For staff living outside those boundaries, we encourage carpooling whenever possible and purposefully set work schedules to try and maximize this. All the little things count and we encourage you to do the same when you visit us at Cypress Hills and/or Elk Ridge Resort!

Refuse and Recycling

We believe in keeping our area clean for you, our visitors, but most importantly for Mother Nature! Our tidiness is a reflection of our commitment to the high standard of guest satisfaction and respect for the environment that we strive to achieve. Litter containers and recycle bins are carefully and generously placed around the property to encourage patrons to help us keep our grounds as neat and clean as possible, so please make use of them. We recycle everything reasonable and donate all the proceeds.
