There are three main types of sky lift which are aerial, cable and surface. The main differences in aerial lifts are chairlifts that either for one or more, and are open to the elements or closed in. Surface lifts are all forms of tow lifts with either bars to sit on or a harness arrangements. Cable lifts are generally for higher ranges and are fully enclosed cabins.
