Possible tramway closure

Seems there was a brush fire in Chino Canyon that cut power to the PS tramway. Tram website is also down. Anyone planing a Skyline hike today should check. I'm currently in Seattle so can't provide a first-hand report.

Thanks, Florian. Hope nobody is stranded up there. Here is a Desert Sun article:

You would think they might have a backup website down in the valley for situations like this.
