GATLINBURG, Tenn. — The longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America has turned into a winter wonderland!

The Gatlinburg SkyLift Park posted a video on Facebook Monday showing the Gatlinburg SkyBridge decked out in holiday lights and decorations.

The SkyBridge, which opened earlier this year, stretches 680 feet across a deep valley in the mountains of East Tennessee.

A winter storm hit the area last month, dumping several inches of snow on the bridge.

That snow, combined with the holiday lights, is creating a pretty incredible sight on the 'SnowBridge' as it's now called.
