Wisp Resort, which serves as Maryland’s only ski resort, has recently opened a new attraction for its summertime visitors. The Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour is a zip line that carries riders over the treetops as high as 50 feet above the ground.

According to a Wisp official, the tour will cost $39 and is for riders aged 10 and up. Besides sliding in harnesses along five cable routes ranging from 180 to 400 feet, riders will navigate a rope bridge and a plank bridge.

Due to the popularity of the new summer activity, the resort is recommending reservations for the new ride.
