Peek’n Peak Resort opened as a ski area in for the 1965 ski season. Its name comes from Pekin Hill, the name of the Pekin family homestead where the ski slopes are located. Today, Peek’n Peak is a year-round destination, thanks to its golf course, spa, restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools and, for those looking for an adrenaline fix, its aerial adventure center.
Peak Mountain Adventures includes aerial adventure courses, zip lines, Segway tours, miniature golf and biking. The aerial adventure course features 69 obstacles and eight courses of varying difficulties. You’ll climb up cargo nets and ladders, navigate ziplines and balance on treetop platforms. This self-guided experience takes about three hours and gives you the chance to explore the course at your own pace. You’ll soar through the trees and take in the gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains and valleys on the two-part, 2,000-foot Giant Dual Zipline. Or you can fly over the resort on the Soaring Eagle Zipline, a separate and thrilling 1,400-foot tandem zip line, 130-feet up in the air.
The Segway tours are limited to 10 riders for either the 30-minute “Try Me” tour or standard one-hour tour. Before starting any ride, a 15-minute training session teaches you how to operate a Segway.
Note: You must wear closed-toe, flat shoes or sneakers. There are a couple options for bicycling, too, which is a fun way to explore the resort’s paved pathways. You can do it the old-fashioned way, pedaling a “fitness bike”, or the more relaxing
way, on an electric bike.
“Excellent packages available for kids lessons (which they loved – ages 6 and 5). Skiing was uncrowded despite perfect ski conditions and it being Sunday.”
