    Plenty of people are/were opposed to the project and I think that's perfectly fair. There's no question that it impacted the area. That's a whole different level than someone cutting the cable.

    Yes, I think we can say with confidence that gondola cabins swing in strong winds. I'm still not sure what this has to do with the haul rope being completely severed.

    This is in conflict with the table you posted earlier. 2/3 of 2" is 4/3", so only 2/3" remaining wire. Your table says this will snap around 40 kips as opposed to 320 for the 2" rope.
