Squamish RCMP officer goes to great heights as he looks for clues in Sea to Sky Gondola case

      The Sea to Sky Gondola provides spectacular views of Howe Sound from almost 900 metres above sea level.

      Prior to this weekend most of us would have probably preferred to be inside one of the gondola's cozy cabins rather than from one of the supporting beams.

      But the unnamed RCMP officer in the photo above chose to go on top of the structure as he looked for clues in the criminal case that's caught the attention of the country.

      He didn't have a choice.

      That's because around 4 a.m. on August 10, someone cut a cable on the $22-million tourist attraction, sending many cabins to the ground.

      There are still no arrests.

      Nobody was injured but had it occurred later in the day, the gondola would have been carrying lots of passengers.

      It's out of service for now, which means more than 200 people are out of work.

      The company intends to repair the structure and resume service in the future.
