    What is with the pipes near the comline?

        Correct. Side note, we will be taking them off later this year and putting them in the ground. The grey water line is no longer in use as well.

        And now I can officially announce why we are doing that. (It finally became public knowledge today.) We will be converting Iron Mountain Tramway into a full fledged detachable lift. I’m happy to share what details I can if you would like, just let me know what info you need. :)

    Is there any way you could get a gondola cabin

      For the right price. ;) Kidding aside, right now the future of the current terminals, haul rope, and cabins is under wraps at this time. I’ll give you more details when I can.
