Notes
  • Major refurbishing, 1999, but soon after was wrecked by winds. WSJ20060128: "...winds blew it off its moorings. It might have been blown down the mountain if it hadn't wedged against the steel-frame supports." Reopened April 2000 with 21 new stabilizer cables on each side. Survived 200+ mph wind gust, January 2006.
