Moab Scenic Tram, UT

After offline cabins were damaged by vandals, new ones were ordered and kept hanging out of reach.
Unique bottom terminal building.
Portal tower 1.
This has to be one of the newest gondolas out there with non-hydraulic tensioning and non-level boarding.
The lift line. It’s short.
CWA Omegas damaged beyond repair.

    Do you know what side this lift goes up? Clock side or counter clock wise?

    CCW based upon the cabin door opening/closing assemblies.

    My friend went down to Moab and he rode this gondola and its up and running. Its not abandoned. Also the link from Utah to Moab senic tram takes you straight to this and not the spreadsheet.

    Any details? I find it unlikely that gondola reopened…errrr…ever opened.

        In this age of social media, nobody goes camping without a camera or a smart cell phone. Where’s the pics ? 🙂

    There is one thing the lift has so much damage could they get it up and running in less than a few months I was in Moab in the spring and was not running. I think your friend was lying I will contact some locals down there and ask.

    Me too. I was there 2 weeks ago and there was no signs of life, and our hotel was a two minute walk from it. I could actually see it from my room.

    Sorry, not that recently, but still, it wasn’t running.
