Proposed by:
Tagging: Piste:type=connection
Applies to: ways
Definition: Ways that connect ski lifts with each other, mainly for routing purposes


Introduce a tag that allows to connect ski lifts to ski pistes, when no one of the existing tags applies: Some times there are connections over bridges or other type of connections that are purely made to get from one lift to the other or from a lift to where the piste starts.

I propose a new tag Piste:type=connection to cover these cases.



Connections of this type are especially important for ski routing applications. As with car routing: Routing won't work if ways aren't connected!


This example has been deleted before as it doesn't really qualify as Piste:type=downhill, hence the comment. More examples on the discussion page!
