        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. :)

      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.
