‘Ski gondolas are the next big winter dining craze’, according to Fast Company. *COVID-19 consequence explanation incoming*

Ski resort eateries and privately-owned restaurants are turning to old gondola cars as an attractive, socially-distant, and easily cleanable solution to indoor dining regulations amidst COVID-19.

Dominique Bastien, owner of The Gondola Shop, purchased close to 200 gondola cars over the last few years. She planned to convert them for private use in people’s yards. Then, the pandemic hit.

Bastien says that she has been contacted by over 50 restaurants across America, and that each gondola car sells in a range of $14k-$20k.
