Boyne Mountain Resort Building SkyBridge Michigan, the World’s Longest Timber Towered Suspension Bridge
Boyne Mountain Resort is building the world’s longest timber suspension bridge between two of its ski peaks, allowing resorters to take in some spectacular Northern Michigan scenery.
Skybridge Michigan will traverse 1, 203 feet between the peaks of McLouth and Disciples Ridge. The 118 foot high bridge is modeled after Boyne Resort’s Gatlinburg SkyBridge at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park in Tennessee.
Boyne’s Skybridge is scheduled to open in June 2022.
It sounds really neat. I think I could get some terrific photos from up there.
To get to the bridge, guests will ride chairlift to the mountaintop. From there, they can walk the bridge and connect to other parts of Boyne Mountain’s trail system.
Skybridge Michigan adds to Boyne’s ridiculous number of activities, including the ten courses of Boyne Golf, a Trackman range, skiing, mountain biking, sno-go biking, cross country, showshoeing, tubing, chair lift rides, zip lines, beach activities, bicycling, hiking, wakeboarding, fishing, a heated pool (useful for cooler weather, which you can get in Northern Michigan) and a spa. Topping it all off is Boyne Mountain’s Avalanche Bay indoor waterpark with some 88,000 square feet of slides, towers, wave pools, lazy river and more.
