Weekly Roundup: Seattle Gondolas Talks, Reopening of Christchurch Gondola and Peak 2 Peak’s Harlem Shake

Post by Gondola Project

A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:

  • Preliminary talks of a gondola in Seattle appears to be heating up. One proposal, championed by Matt Roewe and Matt Gangemi, looks to connect Capitol Hill to Olympic Sculpture park while Hal Griffith, a local businessman, is studying a connection between the downtown and central waterfront.
  • The Christchurch Gondola is set to open its doors again next month to sightseers and visitors after a $2 million renovation. The system was out of commission since the devastating earthquake hit the city two years ago. Amazingly, the buildings survived the massive tremors but due to a broken sprinkler, it flooded the top station’s interior.
  • At this time I’m sure everyone is sick of the viral Harlem Shake video. But since it’s still sorta relevant and it’s Friday, here’s a clip of skiers having some fun Whistler’s Peak 2 Peak.
