    I remember hiking around those falls mayby 35 years ago, but no gondola back then.

    Correct. On my last visit it didn't exist nor the double zip line either. 1993 Doppelmayer imageimageimage

    That's the one that got stuck with a bunch of kids from Cabot School a couple of years ago!

    Now you tell me? Glad I didn't know...a different design than I'm used to seeing with 2 cables. It rocks a bit when you're the first person getting on.

    The falls are still spectacular but with the tram, zip lines, staircases, dam, spillway, bridge, train, snack shops and wire rope climbing lines it is far from au naturel. And they have some of the strangest pricing; $7.03, $12.06, $39.92, & $47.44 for a few examples. And so many package options for us tourons, it is no wonder the line to get in takes a while to move along.  

    I knew of the 1996 funicular accident in downtown but I didn't tell Mrs Ski_It until after riding it up.

    Nice pic. Yeah it's a small, small north east coast. We were in QC, QC from 6/30 to 7/4. Did we cross paths?
    We walked into a museum and ran into my daughters high school classmate & a member of my wife's Girl Scout troop, etc... Its a small small northeast coast.

    So I read some about the stranded passengers but didn't see what broke to keep them there 9 hours. Anyone know?

    We were in QC from 6/28-7/3. We stopped at Montmorency falls, Mt. Massif and Baie St. Paul one day and spent an afternoon hiking at Mt. Saint-Anne. Otherwise, we stayed in QC and walked all over the city. A beautiful city it is!
