Cable Car – Chute Montmorency, QC

This short jig back lift provides views of a nearby waterfall.
There is no easy way to walk between the top and bottom of the falls so the lift provides a link.
The carriers are Gangloff funitel models for 30 passengers.
There is only one tower near the bottom terminal.
Beacuse the falls is on one side of the lift, both cabins face the same direction with stadium style risers for rows of passengers.
The cabins are supported from two ropes for wind stability.
