MONT-TREMBLANT, Que. – One person remains in hospital a day after a deadly gondola crash at Quebec’s popular Mont Tremblant resort.
Two people were thrown from a sightseeing gondola at the resort in the Laurentian Mountains on Sunday, killing one and critically injuring the other.
Provincial police said the crash occurred shortly before noon when a piece of construction equipment struck the gondola.
A statement from Station Mont Tremblant said the construction equipment involved in the collision was operated by a third party.
The gondola remains closed until further notice and Sunday’s activities on the mountain, including an ongoing Blues Festival, were cancelled.
Quebec’s Tourism Minister Caroline Proulx said in a post on Twitter that she is following the situation closely.
