Are you physically fit, safety conscious, comfortable working with ropes and heights, and do you have an outgoing and personable disposition? Does your adventurous spirit call you to explore the remote Colorado mountains? If so, you may just have what it takes to work at Soaring Treetop Adventures, the world’s largest zip line course, rated #1 on! Seeking applicants for Zip Line Tour Guides (Sky Rangers) for the upcoming summer season.

Employment dates:

June 1 – mid-August (peak season – great for students), OR
June 1 – mid-October (full season)

Duties include, but are not limited to, guiding guests through the treetop canopy tour on the largest and safest zip line course in the U.S., focusing on guest safety as our first priority. Zip line through breathtaking Aspen forests and over the rushing Animas River! Candidates must maintain a clean and professional appearance, actively engage guests in conversation throughout the day and provide a safe and unforgettable experience high up in the Ponderosa forest. Requirements include the ability to lift small children on/off the zip line cables, frequently climb via ascenders up 60’ of rope, and feel comfortable in such environments. Familiarity with climbing gear a plus. Basic First Aid/CPR certification required.

Sky Rangers are responsible for safely leading large groups of guests through the zip line course. The job is physically challenging, so you need to be very physically fit, and it requires 100% attention to safety, so you need to be detail-oriented. Sky Rangers are also responsible for daily course inspections, harness inspections, and course and equipment maintenance.

All guides need to be comfortable with public speaking, heights, standing for long hours, and be physically fit. For more information, please visit our website at
