See also Aerialway

Used for various forms of transport for passengers and goods that use wires, including cable-cars, chair-lifts and drag-lifts. See WikiProject Piste Maps and Proposed features/Piste Maps for more details.

Private use (forestry, agriculture..) aerialways can be tagged with access=private/forestry/... and other access=* restrictions.

Aerialways used for transport of goods could be mapped with foot=no and/or one of usage=industrial (industrial/mining aerialways) or usage=freight. Some freight/industrial aerialways may allow passengers, those might be tagged with foot=yes, foot=private, foot=forestry or similar.


Osmarender and Mapnik show ski lifts. Example are for Hoch y brig.

Aerialway attributes

The start and end nodes of a way tagged as a piste:lift are assumed to be a station. These nodes may have their elevation documented with ele=*. Additional information should be tagged on the way (of the lift). Access may also depend on transport type(ski/foot/bicycle/?):

Key Value Element Description Example Photo
Wired ways
aerialway:occupancy People in each carriage (car, chair, etc.); numeric. vía Platter, j-bar and rope_tow implies aerialway:occupancy=1 and T-bar implies aerialway:occupancy=2.
aerialway:capacity People per hour; numeric. vía piste:lift:capacity=2600
aerialway:duration Minutes; numeric. vía Average/typical time for journey on that lift.
aerialway:detachable yes/no vía Specifies whether the aerialway has a detachable grip (yes) or a fixed grip (no). Especially significant for [W] chairlifts. By default, gondola, chair_lift, and mixed_lift imply yes, while cable_car, t-bar, j-bar, platter, rope_tow, and magic_carpet imply no.
aerialway:bubble yes/no (default) vía If each carriage has a (retractable) transparent cover to provide weather protection.
aerialway:heating yes/no (default) vía If each carriage has heating.
aerialway:bicycle yes/summer/no vía If bicycles are allowed in carriages: all year round; in summer, or not at all. By default, cablecar, gondola, and mixed_lift imply yes, and chairlifts, t-bars imply no. Sesselbahn Marchner.jpg
aerialway:access entry/exit/both/no nodo
Artículo principal: conditional restrictions

The access allowed to carriages at this node, entry means it is possible to board the lift here, exit means it is possible to disembark, both means both are possible (often the case for gondolas and cable-cars), and no means neither are possible (useful for beginning and ending nodes if the implicit assumption of being an entry or exit station is incorrect). Add :summer or :winter subkeys where seasonal rules apply (often in winter only ascending is allowed).

aerialway:summer:access entry/exit/both/no nodo The access as above, but only during "summer". Similarly for "winter". Use no in all stations if the aerialway is not operated at all.
