|Ski tow might refer to|
A Surface lift is a means of cable transport for snow sports in which skiers and snowboarders remain on the ground as they are pulled uphill. Once prevalent, they have been overtaken in popularity by higher-capacity aerial lifts like chairlifts and the gondola lift. Today, surface lifts are most often found on beginner slopes, very small ski areas, and peripheral slopes. They are often utilized at glacier skiing resorts because their supports can be anchored in glacier ice due to the lower forces. These supports may need to be realigned several times each year due to glacier movement.|
* Surface lifts have some disadvantages compared to aerial lifts: they require more passenger skill and may be difficult for some beginners and children, sometimes they lack a suitable route back to the piste, the surface must be continuous, they impede skiable terrain, are slow in speed, and have lower capacity. Surface lifts have some advantages over aerial lifts: they can be exited before the lift reaches the top, they can often continue operating in wind conditions that are too strong for a chairlift as they are lower to the ground, and they are lower maintenance.
