MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s Passenger Tramway Division has ordered a ski resort’s aerial tram to be shut down until upgrades are made.

Documents from the state Department of Labor say that the Jay Peak aerial tram was allowed to run during this year’s ski season as long as repairs were made by the end of the season.

The director of the division, Stephen Monahan, wrote in the order delivered Wednesday that tramway inspectors have been advised that Jay Peak hasn’t taken steps to begin the work needed for the tram to operate.

Jay Peak receiver Michael Goldberg was appointed to run the resort following a federal investigation into alleged fraud by the owner and resort president.

Goldberg has said he would seek permission from the court to complete the $4.5 million repair.
