The How of Wow: The Columbia Icefield Skywalk

How Of Wow

Have you ever looked at something and asked, “How did they do that?” CKUA’s newest feature, “The How of Wow,” highlights marvels of innovation and technology that are all around us. The stuff Engineers and Geoscientists create can be beautiful, sometimes even iconic, but it has to work.

Imagine, you are suspended almost a thousand feet above the ground, tiptoeing gingerly to the end of a diving board. The Columbia Icefield Skywalk invites you to dive into the scenery, mentally painting yourself into the landscape, suspended without wires. How is this possible, we asked one of the structural engineers on the project, Geoff Kallweit.
