Jay Peak tram down for maintenance through the fall.
Heard the rumor from a friend and it's on their Facebook page. It's down for a while-- hopefully back for winter:
From time to time we do repair work on the tram. The aim is to schedule maintenance for non-operating periods, but sometimes mechanical issues occur that must be addressed when the situation arises. This is such a time where the mechanical work must be done otherwise the lift would not be operational. The work requires engineering and support from Austria and will require a time commitment that makes operation these next few weeks not possible. These repairs can’t be done in the freezing weather because ice on the towers and cables jeopardizes the safe repair of the vehicle. This is the reality of the procedure and we must approach it in this safe and prudent way. We are very sorry not to be able to offer scenic foliage tram rides, but if we don’t address these issues now, we could face the risk of a winter interruption, and none of us want that. Thank you.
