20 people trapped overnight on Sandia tramway


Officials confirmed that Ten3 employees were back on the tram around 9:30 p.m. Friday after an ice buildup halted the tramway.

According to Sandia Peak’s chief human resources officer Brian Coon, an unusually rapid build-up of ice on one of the cables caused it to sag underneath the tram, making it dangerous to keep going.

KOB 4 has confirmed that a rescue team is on the way and will be flying a helicopter to land down the mountain.

BCSO search and rescue says people are in surprisingly high spirits.
