STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo.— The new gondola at Steamboat Resort in northern Colorado has been shut down because of a mechanical malfunction.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports that with a busy holiday week ahead, crews were working to repair the gondola, but a timeline for its reopening was not immediately known. The resort has opened the Thunderhead Express for guests to access the open terrain.

Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. digital communications manager Maren Franciosi says the new gondola fully opened to the public last Saturday but then was shut down at about 4:45 p.m. Sunday.

The malfunction occurred on the drive line to the gear box in the upper terminal.

There were no guests on the gondola at the time it stopped working.
