dude! gondolas are fucking awesome! i've been on a few: mt. tremblant outside of montreal, killington, lake tahoe somewhere.

its like a regular lift in that it slows down when you get to the loading/unloading zone. the doors just swing open automatically and you got a minute to jump out and grab your gear.

they usually have racks on the outside to put your shit but its kinda freaky to watch your board sway in the wind with like 6 inches of plastic holding it up so i usually bring it inside.

another upside is that they are usually heated.

an even bigger upside is that gondolas are easily converted to become ganjalas. get all your friends in one and bake it out to your hearts delight, make new friends, whatever ya know.

good stuff dude, have fun :cool:

Aww yea gotta agree that gondolas are the gnar of ski travel to the top of the mountain. :cool:

Rode the J-Hole's gondi the last year they ran it - a shame they're taking it out, that was the best one in the country my friend. Also rode the one up in Tremblant but there's no comparison - once you've conquered the J-Hole gondi there ain't no other. But yeah, you'll have fun. And +1 to BuddhaG's reco.

I've seen sierra nevada in every where. Most of my travels are on the east coast but you can buy sierra nevada in the local food lion in virginia.

Same here jj - pretty much everywhere I go I see it. They have it here in Maine too. Good stuff. I like the IPA, not the Porter so much - yuck! Also have tried a few others but can't remember which ones.
