This winter a snow volcano will again erupt over Bethel.

But it won’t be the only action attraction. They are also planning a zip line running from the top of the volcano, as well as a lighted snow cave at its core. After the eruption, a wooden platform built on top of the volcano could serve as the launching point for a 400-foot double zip line, which would run to the nearby street corner. The zip line would be a one- or two-day activity only. Last summer they engineered a similar zip line.

A zip-line (also known as a flying fox, foefie slide, zip wire, aerial runway, or aerial ropeslide) consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding onto, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment.

They may be short and low, intended for child's play and found on some playgrounds. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rainforest canopy. In essence a form of Tyrolean traverse, zip-line tours are becoming popular vacation activities, found at outdoor adventure camps or upscale resorts, where they may be an element on a larger challenge or ropes course.
