A station where passengers can enter and/or leave the aerialway (ski lift or cable car) or where goods can be loaded and unloaded.

How to map

Place a node at the location of the station, and add the tag aerialway=station. The nodes should also be the ends of the way representing a lift (so a way that has the aerialway=gondola tag or similar).

Or you can draw the building, and add the tag aerialway=station. In this case, the aerialway ends at the building.

Additionally you might want to add:

Tag Description Picture
aerialway:station=bottom station at the end of the aerialway with the lower altitude
Talstation Patscherkofelbahn.jpg
aerialway:station=top station at the end of the aerialway with the higher altitude
Bergstation Fellersbach 6erJet - panoramio.jpg
aerialway:station=mid any station not being at the end of and aerialway
