Spring break is a time to break free from the routine, soak up some sunshine, and create memories that last a lifetime. While the allure of beaches and poolside relaxation is undeniable, Colorado offers an alternative spring break experience that’s both exhilarating and unforgettable: a Via Ferrata or zipline tour. Not sure what the difference is? Discover the unique excitement of a Colorado Via Ferrata course.

Our aerial adventures open March 1st, 2024 at our Idaho Springs outpost, offering the opportunity to soar through the beginning of beautiful Colorado sunshine.

Here’s why our Mount Blue Sky Via Ferrata or Cliffside Zipline is the perfect addition to your Colorado spring break trip.

1. Embrace the Spring Weather:

Spring in Colorado is a magical season. The snow starts melting, revealing lush green landscapes and vibrant wildflowers. The days become longer and warmer, offering the perfect temperature for outdoor adventures. Unlike other sports, aerial adventures are not limited by lingering snow, making them ideal activities to enjoy the best of the spring weather. And if there is snow still on the ground, what’s better than flying right over it?

2. Experience Unparalleled Thrills:

A Via Ferrata course or ziplining adventure offers a unique blend of adrenaline-pumping excitement and breathtaking scenery. As you climb high into the Rocky Mountains, you’ll feel the rush of wind against your face and get a bird’s-eye view of the stunning Colorado wilderness. From climbing up mountain valleys to gliding through ancient forests, aerial adventures will leave you breathless, in the best way possible.

3. Suitable for All Levels:

Whether you’re a seasoned thrill-seeker or a first-time adventurer, you will have a blast in the mountains. Our guided tours cater to all skill levels, with courses designed to be both challenging and accessible. Experienced guides will provide thorough safety instructions and ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience, regardless of your previous experience.

Spring break is an opportunity to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature. A Via Ferrata or zipline experience allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Colorado Rockies. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, listen to the sounds of birds chirping, and marvel at the breathtaking scenery. This connection with nature can be incredibly rejuvenating and leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized.

On AVA’s cliffside zipline or Mount Blue Sky Via Ferrata tour, you’ll get high into the Rocky Mountains, with the opportunity to experience this unique landscape up close.
