San Francisco Fun Seekers About to Get a BC Experience.

Olympic Gold Medalists Shani Davis and Ashleigh McIvor Join British Columbia and Ziptrek Ecotours, Aboriginal Dance Group and More Coming to Justin Herman Plaza in April

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- One of the most popular public activities during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games is coming to San Francisco as part of The British Columbia Experience, an 11 day celebration kicking off on April 8th.

Ziptrek Ecotours are used to taking tourists soaring through mountain treetops in British Columbia but starting in April, they will be giving San Franciscans a chance to experience their own free urban zipline that will bring them flying over 600 feet across Embarcadero Square. This unique event will let visitors experience the thrill and exhilaration of ziplining - brought to prominence in North America by Ziptrek Ecotours' flagship operation in Whistler, British Columbia. During the Winter Olympics, thousands of visitors enjoyed a similar urban zipline in downtown Vancouver.

The zipline is just one element of The British Columbia Experience, an event taking place in Justin Herman Plaza from April 8th until April 18th. The event will also feature free public dance performances by the world-renowned Aboriginal dance group the Le-La-La Dancers, an interactive video display, a 3D art installation, and more.

To help launch The British Columbia Experience two gold medal winning Olympians, US Speed Skater Shani Davis and Canadian Ski Cross Racer Ashleigh McIvor will be among the first to try out the zipline and participate in a public autograph signing on April 8th.
