A ski lift is a device for transporting passengers who ski on their skis or other sports equipment on the ground and are towed uphill by means of a towing device. In the case of ski lifts, a revolving hoisting rope runs at a height of approximately three to four metres, to which tension brackets are attached via a winding mechanism. A distinction is made between plate lifts with plate brackets for one person (usually on practice slopes) or anchor lifts in short or long versions for two persons (ski lift with plate brackets).
