Sunday Is the Tram's Last Day

Laramie, WY – This Sunday the tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will take its final voyage. It's the longest tram in North America and has ferried skiers and tourists up the mountain for 40 years. Sunday it will take a load of tourists and dignitaries up to mark its closure. Resort President Jerry Blann says he'll be on the last tram and he knows it has meant a lot to the resort and community.
He says they will have a new, larger tram up and running in 2008, and engineers will use the old tram to build it.
