Cape Smokey Holding Signs Agreement with Leitner-Poma to begin construction on Atlantic Canada’s First Gondola. Leitner-Poma Canada, based in Ontario, will begin construction of an 8-person Gondola to replace the old chair lift of Ski Cape Smokey. The current chairlift has been inoperable for years, and is in the process of being taken down in preparation for its replacement.
This will be Atlantic Canada’s first and only gondola, providing renewed access to the entire ski hill in winter. The gondola will run year-round, to provide a new experience and views to visitors and tourists of the Cabot Trail. Despite COVID-19, Cape Smokey’s gondola is currently scheduled to open on time, Canada Day 2021.
Leitner-Poma has notable gondolas and chairlifts across the world, including Whistler, British Columbia and Banff Park, Alberta.
