Re: Summer St. Gondola

Curbed Boston created a nice (simple) list of 9 aerial trams in the US.

As might be assumed, most are "tourist-type" trams for skiing, etc (Snowbird Arial Tram, Alyeska Resort Tram) although some get a mix of tourists and residents / visitors (Roosevelt Island Tram; Portland Areal Tram).

Post links to a blog post about the Squaw Valley Arial accident, something I had never heard about. 12 people ended up dying while many survived. Saving them seems to have been quite the challenge.
