      A popular tourist attraction has once again been victimized by sabotage.

      Sea to Sky Gondola general manager Kirby Brown has told CBC News that the cable was cut overnight. And that caused cars to once again fall to the ground.

      The gondola is between the Stawamus Chief and Shannon Falls, providing spectacular views of Howe Sound.

      Squamish RCMP and the Sea to Sky General Investigation Section are investigating with the West Vancouver Police Department, Integrated Police Dog Services, and more. 

      According to Squamish RCMP, the Sea to Sky Gondola security team contacted them at 4 a.m. to inform them that the cord had been cut.

      Back in August 2019, the main cable was cut, forcing the closure until last February.

      A Swiss-led team managed to repair the line by splicing together pieces of cable. The owner installed 30 new cabins, as well as a security system.

      Brown became general manager on March 16 after working for many years at Whistler Blackcomb.

      Last August, the RCMP tweeted this photo of a gondola car that crashed to the ground.
