Quite modern-looking cars, Tom...are they airconditioned?
Tom Wilson: He, he - very modern and very effective - and a nice, stable ride.

This is super modern and I wonder how many know about this ski resort. The things you see on your travels, wow. Great picture.

Tom Wilson: I guess that not many West Europeans have been up there, but it is well known in Eastern Europe, pulling in people from Poland, Belarus and Russia. As you'll see, in pics coming up - the snow arena is an amazing construction.
Oooh that looks fun! Very nice!
Tom Wilson: It was a nice, steady ride - about 10 minutes up to the Arena.

Some group or other has suggested slinging one of these across Bath. Naturally the NIMBYS are out in force at the proposal..
Tom Wilson: I had to Google that - seems like a good idea, if the terrain below is suitable - and it would certainly cut the air pollution!
Thankfully, Tom, I see there is also room for the skis.
Tom Wilson: Yes - they're big enough!
How these things have improved over the years Tom.
Tom Wilson: This is really high-tech stuff, Chad.
superbe moyen de locomotion!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Oui, c'est vrai!
I've been on one of these a couple if times but I guess I wouldn't be dissapointed not to go on one again.
Tom Wilson: This one gave a very stable ride, Brian - no discomfort at any point.
Very stylish the look too Tom
Tom Wilson: State of the art gear I think, Bill

Heh, the Ferrari of cable cars smile
Tom Wilson: Speedy it ain't, but it's seemed stable and safe, which I guess is the aim!
