About Denali Park Zipline

Denali Park Zipline strives to show Denali from a different perspective - above the trees!

As a local, family owned and operated small business, we value developing close relationships with our employees and guests. Not all employees need to spend their days on the lines, but everyone must enjoy meeting people from all over the world, creating lasting friendships, and spending time in Alaska's wild beauty. Denali Park Zipline is located minutes from the main entrance of Denali National Park. Our season is short and intense! Zipline tours depart every day, all day, in just about all weather, mid-May to mid-September.

Denali Park Zipline is part of the Denali Park Adventures family (also see Denali ATV Adventures and Denali Jeep Excursions)

The Employee Experience

Working at Denali Park Zipline, each staff member will have the opportunity to live, work, and play right outside the 3rd largest national park in America, which is home to the largest mountain in North America! After your adventure-filled day of working alongside like-minded staff, you will have plenty of time to explore, hike, camp and many other activities under the midnight sun of Alaska.

Every staff member is vital to the continued success and growth of our company! We strive to facilitate an experience of fun, knowledge, ample recreation activities, team-building opportunities, and plenty of networking. We enjoy investing in our staff in many ways and look forward to the staff that returns year after year. Take a look at our videos and see for yourself a fraction of the activities you can participate in and a brief glimpse of what life looks like here in the interior of Alaska.

We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and guest! We are constantly following and updating protocols based on the guidelines from the CDC, State of Alaska and Denali Borough.

Room and Board

Denali Park Zipline provides dormitory-style housing in Healy, Alaska.  Most rooms are single occupancy (no roommates!) but couples housing is also available. Kitchens and commons are in a separate area. Facilities include full restrooms, running water, on-site laundry, wireless internet, DirectTV, yard and deck with fire pit, grill, and outdoor games.

Although meals are not included, kitchens have ample cooking equipment, counter space, and appliances. Food can be purchased at Three Bears Grocery, just 2 miles away. All staff wishing to live in our employee housing must sign a housing agreement.

If sharing housing with around 20 co-workers doesn’t sound ideal to you, or you travel with an animal friend, you will need to look for alternative housing. Local cabin rentals in Healy (not associated with Denali Park Zipline) may be available and you will have to provide your own transportation to work.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Denali Park Zipline can help you plan your transportation to and from Alaska. The easiest and most economical option is to fly into Anchorage and take either the train or shuttle bus to Denali/Healy. We will pick you up at the local train station or bus drop-off. Our employees do receive a substantial discount on the fare to Denali from the Alaska Railroad.

We provide a regular shuttle service around the Denali area. Denali National Park runs free and fee-based shuttles throughout the park for access to camping and hiking. Several other hotels and restaurants run free and fee-based shuttles in the Denali area.

Driving to Alaska with your own personal vehicle may allow you to pursue your own outdoors interests during days off or down time.

For Fun

If you get bored in Denali, it's your problem! Spend time at nearby Otto Lake or enjoy fishing in local lakes. Tackle countless trails to the peaks and ridges of the Healy Range, our base of operations, or travel into the Park for unlimited wilderness experiences. Mountain bikes are a popular option for rent or personal use inside and outside of the Park.

If 6.2 million acres of National Park isn't enough, participate in all the adventure and cultural activities available throughout the summer. Look forward to making connections and becoming part of one of the most unique seasonal communities in the country!
