Riding the Gondola

Mike Doyle
Many of the bigger ski resorts use gondolas to transport skiers up the mountain. A gondola is an enclosed carriage (like a cable car). You will need to remove your skis to ride on the gondola. Depending on the gondola, you will bring your skis inside with you, or place them on an outside rack. You will bring your poles inside the gondola with you.

When it is time to exit the gondola, the doors will open and you step out. Remove your skis from the rack (or, if you're carrying your skis, carry them out of the gondola) and leave the gondola unloading area.
