Gary, interesting as the last I heard installation had not been completed before ski season started. I didn't notice any cable in the video either. They have experienced some technical issues with the installation.

Nobody raised their hand!

They were using a tracked excavator with a pavement breaker attachment to break up the rock for the cable run, one operator basically said enough is enough and felt it was too precarious to continue. Did hear another operator took over though.

Should be an incredible experience when up and running however! Just wondering how they are planning to slow your descent at the bottom?
