Gondola Ambiance

If you’ve never ridden in one, you might have wondered what it sounds like inside a gondola as it carries people up a snowy mountain. Well, now your curiosity can be culled with the sound that’s included in this entry.

The gondolas at Lutsen Mountain are pretty loud. Most of the sound is a consistent low frequency vibration from the cable, but along with it are some squeaks, creaks and groans from the hinge and structure of the gondola itself.

If you think about it too much it can be a bit unnerving. It’s probably best to enjoy the view while humming Beatles songs. Here’s a recording made inside the gondola as it makes it’s way to the top of Eagle Mountain.
