Sea-to-Sky Gondola is the latest attraction to suspend its operations

The Sea-to-Sky Gondola announced on Wednesday that is has suspended operations amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operators said in an emailed statement, until further notice, there will be no access to the summit and that all activities and facilities are closed.

“For the health and well-being of our employees, guests, and community we are pausing all operations,” operators said. “During this period, there will be no upload or download access to the summit. All base and summit activities and facilities will be closed.”

All of the Gondola’s pass holders will have their annual passes frozen as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020. They will be restarted when operation resumes in the future.

“We look forward to welcoming you back when we can all safely enjoy the Sea-to-Sky Gondola together.”

The Gondola finally re-opened to the public last February, six months after a shocking act of vandalism forced its closure.

Last August, the Sea-to-Sky Gondola was shut down due to a significant failure in the gondola system, leading to the collapse of the line and sending cabins to the ground. A lengthy rehabilitation process included bringing in new cables from Europe and an entirely new fleet of cabins.
