    Does this gondola run in the summer?

      No. Unlikely it ever will due to the remote locations of all three stations.

    Did you take these pictures when the gondolas were getting off/on their parking rail? The view from king con looks like they are putting the last of the cabins on the haul rope.

      Some of them were taken a day after a big storm, the first time cabins were ever taken off. It took Park City the entire day to relaunch them. So I had to go back another day for the rest of the photos.

    Is there a reason for which this gondola uses Europe-style stations and tower on the Park City side, and American-style stations and tower on the Canyons side?

      Line gauge is wider on the Park City section because of the big span.
