Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
This is such an nutty story:
In both 2019 and 2020, the Sea to Sky Gondola’s cable was cut by a saboteur. The combined direct cost of both incidents was over $10 million.
I drove by the place countless times. Saw them announcing the gondola opening and watched them build it. It was such a cool addition to the area, but shortly after opening the cables got cut, twice, resulting in significant damage, but luckily no injuries.
“Our community has been faced with something never before seen within our industry,” said gondola’s general manager, Kirby Brown.
Yes, I’ve never heard anything like this happening before, and the fact that even years later they still don’t have any suspects is extra bizarre.
