Towering an impressive 7,200 feet above sea level, the new Whistler Suspension Bridge is not for the faint of heart.

Due to its mammoth height, it is one of the highest of its kind in the world. Further, the daunting crossway is a full 427 feet across. In comparison, the popular suspension bridge in Squamish is about a quarter of the length; it is roughly 100-metres long. 

Specifically, the new Whistler bridge spans the length from West Ridge to the peak chair situated across from Whistler Bowl.

In addition, the attraction will include challenging hiking trails as well as a viewing platform with 360° views from the peak. Construction began in summer 2017, and organizers hope to have it completed very soon.

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.
