Traveling up to Whistler Mountain’s peak to hike or sightsee is always exciting. Stunning, 360 degree views as far as the eye can see are yours for the taking. To add to the titillation of standing on top of a mountain, a new addition to the Peak Zone has recently opened: the long-awaited Whistler Peak Suspension Bridge, otherwise known as the Cloudraker Skybridge. We recently went to walk among the clouds to see for ourselves just why the new suspension bridge is a must add to your Whistler summer adventures.
Using your Peak 2 Peak Summer Experience Ticket, exit the gondola at the Roundhouse and hike towards the Peak Chair. The hike down via the Peak Express Traverse to the Peak Chair can take anywhere from 10 – 20 minutes.
The journey into the clouds starts with a ride up on the Peak Chair.
The first sight of the Peak Suspension Bridge happens part way through the chairlift ride.
The entrance to the Cloudraker Skybridge. The bridge itself is 130m from Whistler Peak to the West Ridge, crossing above the infamous Whistler Bowl that you might have skied during the winter months.
Taking those first few steps onto the bridge can be nerve racking! Make sure to dress warmly, it can be windy and wobbly while crossing.
Make a point of not just looking down. Here is one of the breathtaking views you can take in while on the suspension bridge.
Located a mere 7,200 ft above sea level, the Peak Suspension Bridge is one of the highest suspension bridges in the world. All the more reason to experience it while in Whistler.
On your way out, take in the spectacular Black Tusk.
Exploring not one but two mountains can be part of your Whistler adventure. What’s more, now you can walk through the clouds on Whistler Mountains newest attraction, the Peak Suspension Bridge.
