In a statement, Mark Bee, President of the company, did not elaborate on the precise issues but apologised to the resort’s guests for any inconvenience caused by the delay.
The gondola is one part of a CAN$66 million investment by Vail Resorts, Whistler Blackcomb’s operator.
Bee added that Doppelmayr has completed its upgrades to the Emerald and Catskinner chairlifts, both of which will be running on Thursday when the resort opens.
The Emerald was upgraded to a high-speed system that can fit six people, while the 3-seater Catskinner has been replaced by a high-speed quad lift.
