You could hear the excitement in Todd Manton’s voice.
However, before Manton and brother Jay see the first client glide gracefully glide down the Kokanee Mountain Zipline, there’s just a little more work that has to be completed.
Okay, a little more than just a little. But in a few months zipline enthusiasts from the area will be flying down the six-zipline course.
“We’re 40 percent done,” Todd Manton told The Nelson Daily prior to having a local helicopter company ferry in supplies to the three decks on the East side of Kokanee Creek.
“We’re not quite halfway there but we’re getting there.”
Kokanee Mountain Zipline is the brainstorm of brothers Todd and Jay Manton.
The two are no strangers to the industry —Todd has extensive experience having worked on projects in New Zealand and Oyama in the Okanagan while Jay is a construction engineer.
The pair began the Kokanee Mountain project in 2013, which is adjacent to Kokanee Creek Park on 44 hectares of land above Kokanee Creek.
