Description:
An aerial lift is a means of transport in which gondolas or open chairs are hauled above the ground by means of a cable. Waymark them here.
Expanded Description:
From Wikipedia

Types of aerial lifts include:

  • Aerial tramway, with fixed cable for suspending the gondola and another cable to pull the gondola along the cable.
  • Funitel, with two moving loops of cable which support gondolas (gondolas attach to two cables each).
  • Gondola lift, a moving loop of cable with gondolas attached to the cable.
  • Funifor, two fixed cables for suspending the gondola, with another cable to pull the gondola along the cables.

(The above are often referred to as cable cars). Other types may include:

  • Chairlift, with a moving loop of cable with chairs permanently attached to the cable.
  • Detachable chairlift, a loop of cable moving at high speed, with chairs that can be clipped onto the cable at either station.

Instructions for Posting a Aerial Lifts Waymark:

Please name your waymark submission in this fashion;
Lift Name-Location Name
Example: The Oregon Skyway-Eagle Peak/Willamette Pass, Oregon

  • 1. Locate a permanently installed aerial lift. Lifts that are temporary in nature should not be included in this category.

  • 2. Personally visit and obtain accurate coordinates from the
      primary
    loading area. Lifts that have primary loading area at both the upper and lower locations may be waymarked twice. One waymark for each primary boarding area.
    Example:
    1) An aerial lift that brings a rider to a scenic viewpoint and then provides a boarding area for a return trip should only have one waymark placed.
    2) An aerial lift that can be boarded at either end with no return trip necessary can be waymarked at either end.

  • 3. Provide two (2) original (good quality) photos of the aerial lift.

  • 4. Please include as much information as possible about the aerial lift in the long description.

  • 5. Please add to the variables as much information that is easily possible. If the variables are not filled out and can be easily found through a Google search the submission will be denied with the request that the variables be completed prior to resubmission.

    This category is for actual aerial lifts that operate above ground. Surface Lifts do not meet the criteria of this waymark category.
