Re: “New idea for Manitou: 'Gondola!'

the gondola idea doesn't seem crazy at all!

the telluride gondola, for instance, connects two small mountain towns and substantially reduces the need to go (and therefore amount of cars going) between the two towns. (they used to run a bus). the system works. it's for locals, it's for tourists, and it's free. this sounds similar to the situation here in manitou springs.

more information on telluride here:

from what i've seen in terms of cost, a cable system like this is much more cost efficient (and looks way better) then a fancy parking garage or shuttle bus. plus it can extend to trails and other nearby destinations and will be a much better long term solution.

i've found this site to be a great resource for gondola and urban cable technology: gondolaproject.com
