Platter lift. An overhead tow-line for skiers and riders, known as a platter lift (US), platter pull (US), button lift of Poma (Europe). The lift consists of an aerial steel rope loop running over a series of wheels, powered by an engine at one end. Hanging from the rope overhead are equally-spaced vertical poles or cables attached to a plastic button or platter that is placed between the skiers legs and pulls the skier uphill.
How to map
Draw a way along the route of the cable, and set this aerialway=platter tag on this way. The direction of the way should indicate the ascending direction. E.g., the way should point from the valley station to the mountain station.
