A New Way to Fly



    Famous Showdowns Between Outlaws and the Law
    Canopy Tours

    You won’t have to travel south to Costa Rica or across the Atlantic to the Dolomites in Italy to go zipping through the air across a canopy of treetops this summer.

    Now you can experience the breathless exhilaration of  flying at 50 feet without a parachute just up the road in McHenry, Md. It’s a brand new way to fly over the moguls at Wisp. All you have to do is strap on a harness instead of a couple of skis.

    The Wisp Ski Resort has just announced its new Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour. It’s a zip line tour over treetops and across rope and plank bridges.

    Other than the harness, there’s just one hitch — you have to be 10 or older to take the $39 trip. You’ll be able to choose from five cable routes that run anywhere from 180 to 400 feet long. You decide how long you want your flight to last.
