Officers were called after staff at the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, British Colombia, arrived at work on Saturday and found several cars on the ground.
"We are now assessing the damage, but our preliminary assessment suggests that a cable was cut".
The gondola operator said in a statement that they received an alert at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday that a haul rope had fallen for the Sea to Sky Gondola and the lift was inoperable.
'No guests or staff were on the gondola and no injuries were sustained in the incident. More updates as they become available. "At this time, it's a crime scene".
"We believe the cables were cut and this was a deliberate act of vandalism", said Squamish RCMP Inspector Kara Triance, according to CNN news partner CBC.
There have been two inspections to the cars and the two-kilometer long cable, which can carry up to eight people, so far in 2019 and no significant issues were raised.
The cable was cut about halfway up the route and "it would be very technical and precarious to get to", MacKay said in a statement.
"We are now assessing the damage but our preliminary assessment suggests that a cable was cut".
The company says, in an alert on its website, that due to a major lift incident the tourist attraction is closed for the foreseeable future, and that more information will be provided later.
"This includes hikers, climbers and campers who may have been in the area of the gondola or the Chief".
The Sea to Sky gondola first launched in May 2014 and is open year-round.
RCMP are requesting that people stay away from the area, including nearby outdoor trails.
The RCMP said Saturday they are working with Technical Safety BC and the gondola's manufacturer, Doppelmayr, in addition to walking the gondola line so that it can be properly inspected. "While it's very hard to comprehend the idea that this may have been donedeliberately, we're confident in the comprehensive investigative work ofthe Squamish RCMP, and are being kept apprised of the situation".
There is now no estimated timeframe for repairs or when the Sea to Sky Gondola will reopen. The trip from the base to the summit - 885 metres above sea level - gives visitors views over Howe Sound.
