Gondola tower collapses at Whistler Resort
It's somewhat ironic that with all the attention on Whistler Blackcomb's new PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, one of the older gondola towers would end up in the news. And it wasn't good news, although it could have been worse.
Blackcomb Mountain's Excalibur Gondola tower had a major malfunction on Tuesday and collapsed. You can read more about it in my Seattle Examiner blog.
