Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, California

This impressive system, officially called an aerial tramway, but usually referred to in the English speaking world as a gondola or aerial cableway, was opened in 1963 after nearly 3 decades of planning.  The pic shows a cabin reaching the Mountain Station at 8,516 ft (2,596 metres) elevation.

A history and technical information is on this official webpage
