Thanks I was confused why anyone would build a TRAM with a vertical rise of only 496 feet.
If you look at the list there were 6 lifts installed in North America with less than 300 feet of vertical. You put one of these lifts in you got folks standing in line and hanging in the air going sideways and not up. I don't know about you, but if I am on a lift I want to spend my time going up and not sideways.
