Someone told me June Mountain once had a tram. Is this true? The chair you gotta ride now is poverty. Why if they had a tram would they remove it? seems hard to believe. thanks bye

A quaint device, but a mechanical nightmare. This had the same cable-gripper problems that killed off all Yan detachable chairs.

Was removed in late 90s due to grip and other maintence problems. Currently a 15 person gondola is planned to replace the lift. (replacement coming.)

My uncle is a lawyer and is going to block the 15 person gondi. June is going to go green and have horse drawn sleds taking people up Canyon trail. The sleds will hold 6 adults each. There will be a fleet of 20 horse drawn sleds.
