Rope Tow A ski tow, also called rope tow or handle tow, is a mechanised system for pulling skiers and snowboarders uphill.

In its most basic form, it consists of a long rope loop running through a pulley at the bottom and one at the top, powered by an engine at one end.

Passengers grab hold of the rope and are pulled along while standing on their skis or snowboards and sliding up the hill, with some variations having simple fixed handles.
