After misusing over $200 million in investor funds, Jay Peak is finally turning over a new leaf and getting things back to normal.

That didn’t seem to be the case at the end of May, when state officials found that the Jay Peak Tram was in need of $4.5 million in required improvements and maintenance. That said, it looks as though limited repairs will allow the iconic lift to run this summer reports The Burlington Free Press.

Earlier this spring, the Vermont Passenger Tramway Board issued an order to stop operations on the tram until certain steps were taken to ensure passenger safety. So far, inspectors have signed off on electrical, hydraulic, and braking systems but found a hairline fracture in one of the arms that attaches the tram-car to the tram cable. Repairs on the fracture are planned to be completed during the following week.

Summer operations will commence once state inspectors sign off on a variety of safety requirements after the fracture is repaired.
