With an elevation of about 2,000-metres, it could be the highest suspension bridge in all of North America.

The popular suspension bridge in Squamish is about 100-metres long.

The new bridge will span the length from West Ridge to the peak chair situated across from Whistler Bowl. They’re also looking at creating cantilevered lookouts, improved hiking routes and more uphill “grind inspired” fitness trails.

Renaissance Project

As part of their $345-million Renaissance project, they’re looking to add a lot of attractions to the area in addition to current projects. This includes:

The Watershed: An indoor, four-season, weather-independent adventure centre with waterslides, waves, rope swings and caves
Blackcomb Adventure Park: New, outdoor, non-skiing attractions and activities
On-Mountain Improvements: new chairlifts, restaurant facilities, terrain improvements and snowmaking
The Annex: An indoor action-sports complex designed for aspiring ski, snowboard, mountain bike, BMX and skateboard athletes
Blackcomb Base & Base II: Revitalization of Blackcomb’s base areas
One Blackcomb Place: Six-Star luxury boutique hotel, residence and club
Blackcomb Terrace Townhomes: 55-65 Ski-in/ski-out townhomes

A mountain bike park expansion plan is also in the works to create a network of riding experiences in the Creekside area.
