ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - The Silver Queen Gondola on Aspen Mountain will open for business Thursday after being closed for mechanical reasons on three of the busiest days of the season.
During a routine inspection Sunday evening, a maintenance worker noticed oil leaking in the wheel at the top of the gondola. The gondola has been closed for the past three days because of safety concerns.
The Aspen Times reports the reason for the malfunction is under investigation.
