I got a reply. It would appear that the cable cars up to Vulture Peak are closed every Thursday, but the mountain itself stays open for visitors all the year round.
The foot-path to the top is pleasant enough. And even if the cable-car is closed a litter can be hired for a small price.

So it is that the wise, seeing action as it actually is,
sees dependent origination and is proficient in the results of action.
