Meet The Team

Todd Manton, Co-owner / Operator

Armed with a degree in Ecotourism in Outdoor Leadership, Todd has been in the industry since 2007. He has worked in the Okanagan zipline industry for five years before cofounding Kokanee Mountain Zipline. 

Jay Manton, Co-owner / GM

An engineer (BC/AB) by trade, Jay was seeking a new challenge that included his passion for the outdoors. Partnering with his brother Todd, he found it in Kokanee Mountain Zipline. 


As the original zipline company in the West Kootenay, we’re situated on 44 acres of majestic old growth Douglas fir and pine forests. Without this remarkable setting, Kokanee Mountain Zipline just wouldn’t be the same.

That’s why we feel it’s our responsibility to have as little effect on the natural flora and fauna as possible. Everything from the original construction through to our day-to-day operations has been designed to minimize our impact on surrounding habitat.

We view this ecotourism endeavor as a tremendous opportunity to create awareness about BC’s natural environment, one tour at a time.
