Telluride Serves Up New Gondola Dining Cabins

As places continue to brainstorm creative ways to drum up restaurant business during the pandemic, the Town of Mountain Village at Telluride has come up with a new plan.

They are converting gondola cars into dining cabins for the winter.

The “cabins” will be scattered around in a plaza area, complete with lights in the ceiling and under chairs, heating and ventilation systems, cushioned seats, and easy sliding-glass doors.

Each can hold 6 people.

Diners can then order from 12 nearby restaurants in the village center.

What are some of the creative ideas you’ve seen local restaurants come up with while coronavirus capacity restrictions are in place?
