    Whiteface The difference is the $4,500 cabins can go back up on a lift without any maintenance, the $500 cannot. They look the same.
    Thanks for getting to the bottom of this. For only 500 bucks (assuming the bidding doesn’t go higher), it would make a nice yard sculpture, but I’m not sure how I would transport it home.

    I didn't know folks attempted to do gondys on the cheap. Seems kind of odd given the cars are way the lesser part of the CapEx as opposed to everything else that goes along with putting a gondola in.

    They would actually make a very cool "quiet room" for offices. If I could figure out how to ship one, I would consider it.

    Look at Wildcat. They put in the HSQ, and bought gondola cabins, used, for summer use.

    It's more aimed at replacing a few cabins. Ex- Killington saved some of their K1 cabins for parts/pieces on the Skyeship.

    WILDCAT EXPRESS QUAD (DOPPELMAYR) - A1997 Doppelmayr detachable quad in the winter and a four passenger
    gondola in the summer. While the quad was new to whiteface, the summer cabins were purchased used from Sulfer Mountain
    in Banff Canada when that gondola was upgraded. This summer gondola and winter quad were installed to replace the original
    Carlevaro-Savio gondola though it follows a line one trail over.
