273,000+ Pounds of Haul Rope for the New Vail Village Gondola


Notice the 13 axles on the truck/trailer and the front loader pulling the truck up the hill.

It took 3 hours for the truck to travel from Dotsero to Vail this AM.

    Terry – WordPress allows me/us to “reblog” your cool story about the Haul Rope in this weeks ECT. ECT folks wanted to ask permission before the ECT “reblogs” your cool story.

    ECT would like to include your story in this weeks issue of the ECT (Monday, 15OCT2012).
    May we do that?

    Wow, that’s quite a trailer. We are getting new lifts as well (in Meribel) for the the coming season – excitement all around!
