Vail Mountain’s new ropes challenge course designed specifically for kids is now open at Adventure Ridge. The new activity is a perfect introductory course for children who are not yet big enough to try Vail’s larger ropes challenge courses.
 
The new kids ropes course features six distinct obstacle areas including rope bridges, suspended wood bridges, swinging logs, and other balance elements. It is designed for kids aged five and older, between 30 and 100 lbs.
 
The kids ropes course is the second new activity to open at Adventure Ridge this summer, following the recent debut of a new, single-line, 200-foot long zip line, also geared towards Vail’s youngest guests.
 
Summer lift tickets for Gondola One and the Eagle Bahn Gondola for access to Adventure Ridge can be purchased at the Vail Village or Lionshead Ticket Offices. All 2014-2015 season pass holders receive unlimited, free scenic access to the both gondolas. Guests who have not yet secured a pass for next winter can purchase online at www.epicpass.com or visit any ticket office for more information.
