Skybound in Alaska: The Veilbreaker Skybridges at Alyeska Resort

With three mountain peaks and two bridges, this is an unforgettable opportunity.

Veilbreaker Skybridges opened this July, offering an adventure unlike any other in Alaska. The bridges span 600 feet total, connecting Mount Alyeska, Mighty Mite and Glacier Bowl.

The experience requires you to bring your ABCs: a sense of adventure, an admiration for Alaska’s beauty and courage. Everything else is covered! The experience includes a safety training, harness and helmet, a guided tour and a tram ride up and down the mountain.

For bird’s-eye views of Turnagain Arm, surrounding glaciers and the Chugach boreal forest, book this experience now.
