If you haven’t had the opportunity to brave the Whistler Suspension Bridge this year, you’ll want to venture out soon.
Whistler Blackcomb will close the exciting new feature on September 16th, and it won’t open again until 2019.
Officially named the Cloudraker SkyBridge, this incredible structure is one of the highest of its kind in the world. Standing at an soaring 7,200 feet above sea level, it isn’t hard to believe.
The bridge spans the 130 meters across the West Ridge to the peak chair, which crosses high over the Whistler Bowl.

As of of September 4th, the bridge will be open from 11 am until 4 pm. With that in mind, all lifts are subject to weather and can close without notice. As a result, you should check Live Lift Status or speak with with lift operation staff before embarking on your adventure.

In addition to the suspension skybridge, the Raven’s Eye Viewing Platform will also close for the season. This thrilling viewing platform allows guests to lean out over the Whistler Bowl and provides 360 degree viewing of the stunning alpine vistas. In addition, they will feel las if they are suspended in the air, hanging 12 metres off the cliff’s edge.
The suspension bridge is just one part of Whistler Blackcomb’s impressive $345-million Renaissance project. In fact, they’re looking to add a lot of attractions to the area including a weather-independent adventure centre with waterslides, waves, rope swings and caves.
