Welcome to the Passenger Tramway Homepage

The Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board regulates aerial tramways, surface lifts, tows, and conveyors for recreational purposes in Colorado.The Board establishes the design, operation and maintenance standards, reviews requests for variance from the rules, and investigates accidents related to the operation of tramways. The Board also conducts regular inspections of the installations it regulates.The Board's focus is ski-related equipment but also licenses other types of tramways. The Board does not regulate elevators, escalators, amusement park rides, zip lines, or bus and taxi systems.

Colorado conducts three different types of inspections a year. Licensure inspections are performed in the fall for winter operations and in the spring for summer operations, the annual unannounced inspections are conducted in the early winter, and, unannounced inspections for areas operating lifts for foot passengers are performed in the summer. Inspections of lifts are made by professional engineers working on a contract basis with the State of Colorado.
