Lift tower is any structure which either supports or compresses the haul rope.

Most towers today are "tubes," or pipe. Towers on older lifts, and also very tall towers such as those used on trams, are typically constructed in lattice fashion. Towers are anchored to massive blocks of concrete, which are either buried in soil or pinned to rock.

Lift manufacturers and ski areas also consider the terminals at either end of a lift to be towers.
