Winter transport to the telescope

As every year, we are preparing for the winter at Pico Veleta. So far (as of September 25) no snow has fallen, but temperatures are dropping as a clear sign that the autumn has arrived. Below you find the schedule for the normal winter transport, i.e. when the cable car is operating (typically from December, possibly earlier if a lot of snow falls). During the transition period (i.e. with snow, but without cable car), the transport has to be organized in a very flexible way. We would like to ask visiting astronomers to the 30m telescope to plan their trips during this period with enough margin to account for delayed transport to and from the telescope.
