Oak Street Plaza Gondola Station Closure

Gondola

Words by Bill Kight / Transportation

The main Gondola line, connecting the Towns of Telluride and Mountain Village, will partially close operations on Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12 for continued construction efforts for Telluride Ski & Golf Resort’s (TSG) new snowmaking pump station.

Gondola closures will begin on Monday, September 11 with two, approximately one-hour closures from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. On Tuesday, September 12, there will be two, one-hour closures occurring between 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (if needed).

During the closures, to help move people between the two towns, the Mountain Village Transportation Department and the Town of Telluride will provide bus service to supplement Gondola service to run until the mainline reopens on both Monday and Tuesday. Passenger pick-up and drop-off locations include the San Miguel County Courthouse and Mountain Village Town Hall; buses will run approximately every 15 minutes. The Gondola line referred to as the parking section, running between Mountain Village Town Hall and the Gondola Plaza, and the Gondola Plaza to San Sophia will operate as usual, 6:30 a.m. to 12 a.m. Again, the mainline will reopen to the public once construction is complete.
