SkyBridge Michigan will soon debut as the world’s longest timber-towered suspension bridge. How cool is that? It’s open to the public on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022. The bridge, located at Boyne Mountain Resort, will offer resort guests and northern Michigan visitors a unique year-round activity.

SkyBridge Michigan is positioned between the peaks of McLouth and Disciples Ridge. It stands at approximately 1,200-feet-long. The bridge offers an incredible view of Boyne Valley.

“The experience starts with a chairlift ride to the mountain top, followed by an open-air walk across a suspended five-foot-wide walking surface nearly 118 feet above the valley floor,” a press release states. “Guests can cross and then make a return trip back across the bridge for ample views and thrill. For an unobstructed glimpse of the valley floor below, a thirty six-foot span of see-though glass flooring is located in the middle of the bridge. Eagle’s Nest, the adjacent mountain peak eatery, offers visitors a unique dining experience. Historical resort memorabilia, continued views of Boyne Valley, a full bar and a menu of hearty sandwiches, soups and burgers await guests at the restaurant.”

“With four-season appeal, SkyBridge Michigan is a major attraction for Boyne Mountain Resort, as well as the entire northern Michigan region,” Erin Ernst, Boyne Mountain Resort’s director of communications, said in a statement. “The bridge brings an offering that’s extremely unique for our area. It’s an exciting must-do when planning a trip to northern Michigan, whether for families, couples, or friends.”

SkyBridge Michigan will be open daily, from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. through October 31; Friday-Sunday only starting Nov. 4 through Dec. 4; then open daily for the winter season beginning Dec. 9. Tickets are valid for the day. Fall pricing starts at $25 for adults (ages 11-69), $20 for seniors (ages 70+), $15 juniors (ages 3-10), and free for ages two and under. SkyBridge Michigan is RFID compatible. To get tickets and learn more about SkyBridge Michigan, head to boynemountain.com/skybridge-michigan.
