Cable Car Turned into a Luxurious Hotel Room

Airbnb, the lodging rental social networking site, offers this unusual room that has unmatched privacy and a spectacular view. It’s a modified gondola lift near the resort town of Courcheval in the French Alps. This is a 2-bed suite that can accommodate up to 4 guests. The room comes with snowmobile transportation to the site and a gourmet dinner. Fast Co Design reports:

According to Airbnb, up to four guests will be chauffeured up the mountain on snowmobiles before being plied with mulled wine at the Saulire summit. They will then check into their room, where they will be served cheese fondue, before their room is winched up for the night to the very highest point of Courcheval.

House Rules:
Be respectful of your neighbours - goats are light sleepers.
Don't hang laundry on the cables.
If the gondola's rocking, don't come a knocking...?
Leave your comments in the fog of the windows.
Panoramic view - no TV.
Please don't call for extra ice. (I guess room service is out)
Take plenty of pictures. No one will believe you.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
For an overnight stay, a port-a-potty would do the job just fine, so long as somebody else is getting paid to do the job of emptying it.

I wonder more about heating... Just how much power is the gondola supplied with, and what accommodations have they made?
