Hi Lynda Eisier from last season.. It's Ernie here, I'm BACK! So sorry you're missing me. Are YOU there Ken?? We did have some fun banter a couple of seasons ago. And hello also to MARTYN FORSTER!! We also had alot of fun bantering about using these lifts at speed. If you refer lower down this thread to 2 years ago, you'll see what I mean!! Meanwhile, Heading out to Colfosco and this very lift in around 10 days time. The weather looks great, I'm really looking forward to it. And Ken, if you're reading this, I've had a replacement leg fitted and ready again for our challenge to tightrope walk between the peaks of the Eiger and the Matterhorn. Are you in?? Dalai Lama is also back on track for it, he's retired from the ballroom dancing and needs a new challenge. He's bought some warm socks and a kipper smoker! Bring it on!!
Hey, notoriouskelly! Your comment about jumping in and out of moving cars - the cars unhook from the cable inside the shelter, so people can enter/leave safely then re-engage with the cable to continue their journey. If you're curious Youtube videos show how the machinery works!
where do the cable cars go? it is dark now. surely people dont ski in the dark?
Must be fun entering/exiting gondolas at that speed. I wonder if there is a moving platform. Anyone have video inside?
12dec17--A Thank You to our host, Garnì La Tranquillitè, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of the Sassongher Mountain and the gondola Boé, 1200 km. of ski slopes,
Hi Sharron! The smoke is actually a water spray that is under the freezing point shot from the pipe to the ski slopes and it will be a snow crystal.2014/12/05 16:53
Sharron -- the 'smoke' is Snow !! -- they are using snow 'cannons' to make snow (it does look like smoke though....!)
Can anyone tell me what the 'smoke' is? Forgive the silly question but here, in South Africa, we are not used to snow. Thank you.
Snow! I love watching the landscape turning white!!
02-09-17. Watched the cloud come up over the mountain and it's begun to snow!
Where oh where have Ken and Ernie disappeared to? I could 'listen' to their banter for hours - best comment section I've ever come across on these cams. Come back 'banter men', PLEASE!!
Ski season has come to an end....
Lots of snow falling today, and these cable cars seem to go very fast?..
