The Nitro Zipline & the Matanuska Glacier from afar

The Nitro Zipline in Glacier View, AK

The zipline is 1,500 feet long and it goes so fast it takes a minute to get to the bottom!

  1. I didn’t know they had a zip line there. Must be kind of new. Looks pretty but the glacier seems smaller than what I remember. Maybe it was the distance.

    • It was built a year ago, almost to the day. We actually rode with the grandson of the guy who built it. Next time, I’d like to actually go see the glacier and do one of the hikes. Would have been cool to be closer.
