Wind is also an issue. A traditional gondola uses one cable, which both supports and transports the cars. Blowing gondola cabins are free to pivot around that single rope. But for a span of this distance, extra stability is key. "This project combines the advantages of a tramway system, which uses two cables," Luger says. The cars will still run in a continuous loop (tram cars go back and forth) on a track cable, detaching at the terminals on each end, but they will be pulled by a second hauling cable. "The system is very wind-stable—two tracks and a tow rope."
