I cannot believe no one else has commented on this episode yet- the first act is an unbelievable Nail-biter!!! So suspenseful! You know something dreadful is going to happen and you are filled with anticipatory dread that is the heart of Radio Drama! You picture the scene in your mind- icy cold mountain, sheer drop, cable car, Wind!!! I was looking for another snowy atmosphere after listening to Return to Shadow Lake, and this was great! I had not listened to this before because when I read the synopsis I confused it with another episode that sounded similar about a son of a ski lodge owner demanding the cable car be shut down, I'm not sure what the name of that one is but this is completely different! Don't pass it up if you like snowy atmospheres!

Don't pass it up if you like snowy atmospheres and suspense! Does anyone know of another good stormy episode?

Did anyone else notice that this story is exactly the same as an episode of the TV show "Alfred Hitchcock Presents?" The episode was called "The Crystal Trench" and it aired on 4 Oct. 1959. Very cool story, though. Hard to believe this wasn't plagiarism.

Snowed in with Blizzard Jonas, and so now listening to the snowy icy episode "Silver Medal", with the most suspenseful snowy cable car ride Ever!! Then go over the the mysterious snowy episode "Return to Shadow Lake", and in its Comments section check out my list of 146 Best CBSRMT episodes! If you are new to CBS Mystery Theater I would not listen in sequential order, where you risk losing interest if you hear some that are not as good(there are 1,399, not all could be great!) I would listen to these 146 Best episodes, and then branch out. I wish others would list their Favorites List!!

I like your list. First season there was Preview of Death which is a little snowy.

My favorites: Silver Medal, Summer People, The Real Printer's Devil, Island of the Lost, Deadly Pearls,Sleepy Village, Taken for Granted, Return to Shadow Lake, Witches' Almanac, Devil's Boutique,Terror in the Air, Stay Out of Dutchmen's Forrest, Red Frisbee, Infernal Triangle, Magic Cay, The Clairvoyant, The Colony, Answer Me, Man-sized in Marble, The Kingdom Below, Island on Silver Tree Lake, Land of the Living Dead, The Lost Tomorrows, Squaring the Triangle, Wilhemina Wilson ,Maud-Evelyn, A holiday Visit, The Gift House, Pretty Polly, God Grey Bat,The Innocent Face, Mirror, Mirror, The Acquisition/ This is a start!
