Whistler’s Other Gondola Tower Collapses

by The Editors on December 16, 2008

GondolaJust days after the world-famous Peak-2-Peak Gondola opened Whistler is having a little trouble on one of its other gondolas.

At least a dozen passengers were trapped inside two dangling gondolas at Canada’s Whistler ski resort Tuesday after a tower partially collapsed. . . . Police said there were no serious injuries in the accident about 2:30 p.m. local time. But the passengers remained stranded as emergency officials worked on a plan to evacuate them from the gondolas on the Excalibur lift.

Maybe the resort (which is barely hanging on) was putting a little too much money into the Peak-2-Peak. Click here for video.
