Alyeska Tram To Reopen Saturday
Alyeska Ski Resort in Girdwood says the tram will be running Saturday afternoon for the first time in six weeks. One of the tram cars was severely damaged New Years Eve, when a wind gust blew it into the tram tower. The tram car was impaled in the incident, and the five people aboard, including the tram operator had to be evacuated on ropes by ski patrol. One guest suffered a minor head injury.
The tram usually operates with two cars, but only one will be carrying passengers until the full repair to the damaged car can be completed. It will also run at a slower speed than usual.
