A detail shot of the 40mm compacted hauling cable. Both cabins are attached to this cable which spans the distance from the Valley Station to the Mountain Station. It is 13,100 ft long and weighs 4.22 lbs. per foot.
Shown just prior to installation are the bull wheels which guide the haul rope in and out of the buildings and to the main drive wheel. There are two of these wheels at the Mountain station that help suspend the haul rope counterweight.
