i can't find anything online to confirm this. do you have a link? does the $10 include a down pass on the gondola?

EDIT: thought the $10 charge was to actually climb the grind. gondola cost increasing from $5 to $10. sucks, but i'm an out-of-towner and don't get to do the grind much more than 2-3 times a year anyway. i'll pay it.

As the price for a single download ticket becomes $10 effective June 28, 2010, we encourage all locals to take advantage of the most economic fitness, recreation, and entertainment pass in the city. At $99 for 365 days of unlimited Skyride access, recreation activities, and more, no gym membership can compare.

The Grind... haha! I'll stick to my overnight hikes. Sure it sucks hiking with 40+lbs on your back, but it's worth it when you see the views.

10 bucks for tram down, free if you want to risk walking down. There was also a weird line for 8 bucks cash and free water.

walking down gg is not good for the knees, considering how steep it is instead of it being gradual.

An increase of 100% is absurd. They are trying to justify it by maintenance costs over the years when really the GG has been a HUGE cash cow for the mountain. tourists, and locals head up the trail, spend x amount of money in the lodge buying drinks, snacks, food, and souvenirs. THEN pay another 5$ to take the tram down. now anyone going up the GG is going to have to deal with hoards of people coming down it. good job.
