Here's a shot of the gondola, presumably the completed first stage.

Very cool. That resort, when it gets complete, will offer some major vert. It also might help bring some much needed properity to a war torn region of the world.

In any event, for those who enjoy "skiing the world," it will become a "must do" resort.

Nice Spruce Glades btw. I just hope they were forrested properly.

More on the Gulmarq gondola:

Denver Post Article on Gulmarq Gondola

This will be the first lift to surpass the 13,000 foot mark. When completed, it will extend higher than Loveland's high-speed quad, which currently holds the record at 12,700 feet.

I think that makes it higher than Mount Porte Crayon.
