SkyBridge Michigan Fun Facts

You asked, we answered

  • The SkyBridge extends from the peak of McLouth, or near the top terminal of Mountain Express chairlift, goes over Ramshead, and lands at the summit of Disciples Ridge. 

  • SkyBridge Michigan is designed for pedestrian, foot traffic only.  

    • The Hemlock and Express lifts to access the summit of Boyne Mountain are accessible to guests with disabilities if the guests can stand to load onto and off of the lift's chair.  Upon request, the chairlift can be slowed down or stopped for loading and unloading.  Wheelchairs and other mobility equipment are not permitted on the chairlift; those items may be checked at the base of the lift. A limited number of wheelchairs are available, without charge, near the load/unload area at the top of the lift.
    • Due to the dynamics of a suspension bridge, wheelchairs and other mobility equipment are not permitted on Skybridge Michigan. Guests who are required to use wheelchairs or other mobility equipment (including walkers and crutches) may purchase a scenic lift ticket to view SkyBridge Michigan from the SkyBridge Loop, located at the top of the mountain.
  • For the safety of our guests and furry friends, dogs are not permitted on the lifts or SkyBridge Michigan. For service animal inquiries, please contact our Customer Care team.

  • Due to safety and privacy concerns, Boyne Mountain prohibits the operation of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, on or above resort property without prior written authorization from Boyne Mountain.

    Read our complete drone policy here

  • Strollers are not permitted on lifts or SkyBridge Michigan.

  • The SkyBridge has a whopping 1,023 foot suspended walking surface.  It's about the equivalent to walking a nice lengthy par 4 hole on the The Alpine or Monument golf course. The span from end-of-tower to end-of-tower is around 1,200 feet. 

  • The suspended walking surface is five feet wide. 

  • The height of the timber towers is approximately 52 feet. The height above the lowest point of the terrain that you walk across is almost 120 feet high! That's two-thirds as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa, which stands 185 feet tall along the angle of its lean. 

  • The towers are constructed of wood timbers, sourced from Matelski Lumber right here in Boyne Falls, (glulams with 10x10 internal bracing), the main cable is galvanized steel, and the walking surface is steel framing with pultruded grating deck. 

  • Our good friends at Experiential Resources (ERi) - they also designed and installed the Gatlinburg SkyBridge in Tennessee. Todd Domeck is the incredible designer and ERi is working to construct the bridge at the summit of Boyne Mountain as we speak. Check out the live webcam! 

  • A thrilling chairlift ride to the summit ! Tickets are NOW available for purchase online in advance and guess what....SkyBridge Michigan is RFID compatible. This means you can reload your Go Card, the same media you use for lift tickets, with direct-to-bridge access. 

  • The maximum allowable wind speed during bridge operation is 35mph. Our team monitors wind speed closely and will close the bridge during a high wind event. If either lightning or thunder is present within a 15-mile radius of the site, SkyBridge Michigan must not operate or must be evacuated.  SkyBridge Michigan is able to operate during precipitation as long as visibility is adequate and walking surfaces are clear.
