    What a bummer for the Steamboat Gondola. It’s going to be a bugger to get those parts up to the top.

    From Steamboat:
    November 29

    The new parts have shipped and are scheduled to arrive in Denver today. They’ll be transported by a specialized company and are expected in Steamboat late tonight. We also have a new highspeed drive heading our way- first it is being balanced in Salt Lake City today and then is expected to arrive in Steamboat late tonight. The Doppelmayr technical team is onsite and preparing for these parts to arrive. Once everything has arrived Doppelmayr will begin to reassemble the new parts (we expect this to begin tomorrow). This is extremely technical work and will take time. We’ll continue to update as we get close to having our Gondola back open.

    NOVEMBER 27
    LATEST GONDOLA UPDATE
    The custom replacement parts are now built and Doppelmayr is coordinating the logistics for transport to Denver over the next few days. Doppelmayr technical teams are on site to prepare for the arrival of these parts.

    We will continue to provide updates as we have them. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday!

    November 26
    The replacement part we need is currently being custom built specifically for us in Europe. The remaining members of the Doppelmayr mobilization team will arrive in Steamboat tomorrow along with other technical experts from the manufacturers. The Doppelmayr design team continues to look into all possible reasons for this and we continue to work together to find the root cause.

      The Christie Peak Express was built for situations like this.

        Agreed. But They need Christie III and CE to get people up the mountain on busy days when the Gondola is down. They used C3 several times last year, it was nice to see her running

    Welcome back, Wildwood! Well welcome new Wildwood. Happy to see a lift return to that line and here’s to hoping for many financially successful years!
