Massive new suspension bridges opening in Golden this spring
Golden, B.C. is getting an amazing new mountain experience this spring. The Golden Skybridge will feature two massive suspension bridges connected by forested trails at the end of two iconic Canadian mountain ranges.
“The Columbia Valley is one of those remarkable places that is uniquely positioned to provide a stunning, yet accessible mountain experience,” says David Barry, president of Pursuit. “Whether you’re staying in Golden or making it a stop along your journey between Alberta and British Columbia, the Golden Skybridge will soon become an iconic experience for Canadian and international visitors alike.”
The newly constructed bridges, sitting at 130 and 80 metres high respectively, will offer up dramatic 360 degree views of expansive alpine vistas, while showcasing a roaring 61 metre waterfall and serene mountain river in the deep canyon below.

“There is such pristine natural beauty in this corner of British Columbia and the Golden Skybridge will provide visitors with an intimate look at such stunning mountain scenery,” says Paul Deutsch, one of the local developers along with Rav Soomal who are working in partnership with Pursuit. “The town of Golden is emerging as an impressive basecamp for exploring both the Columbia and Rocky mountains and we look forward to being a continued part of the region’s burgeoning tourism growth.”
The Golden Skybridge will feature a three-kilometre-long nature walk weaving throughout the park and across both suspension bridges.
Viewing platforms will provide guests with further opportunity to take in the picturesque landscapes. An outdoor courtyard and café at the experience base will provide the perfect pre-and post-stop rest along the mountain journey. For more adventurous explorers, the Golden Skybridge will also feature a tandem bungee swing and 1,200 metre zipline spanning the canyon, opening later this summer.
Other Pursuit projects include the Banff Gondola and Maligne Lake cruises.
