A drag lift. An overhead tow-line, usually around 4 meters above skiers and riders. It is known as a T-bar lift, with a T shaped bit which two skiers share by resting their bottom on the bar. It is known as a button or platter lift where the passengers place a circular disk in between their legs. More difficult and uncomfortable for snowboarders. drag_lift would also cover more simple looped rope drag lifts, or loops of wire with handles to grab.

information sign

Better use one of the more specific values aerialway=t-bar, aerialway=j-bar, aerialway=platter or aerialway=rope_tow if possible.

This is just one classification among several cable/wire based lifts/transportation types listed under Key:aerialway. See also WikiProject Piste Maps

How to map

Draw a way along the route of the cable, and set this aerialway=drag_lift tag on this way.

This automatically implies oneway=yes (drawn upward).

Additional features

Position nodes node at either end of the cable. These nodes might be tagged with aerialway=station

If you know the position you can also map support pylons by positioning nodes node in the middle of the way, with the tag aerialway=pylon.
