Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board

Joyce J. Young, Program Director

Consumer Protection is our Mission.

The Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board’s mission is “Public Protection Through Licensure and Enforcement”. It regulates aerial tramways, surface lifts, tows, and conveyors for recreational purposes in Colorado. The Board establishes 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 that it regulates. The Board’s focus is on ski-related equipment, but also licenses other types of tramways. The Board does not regulate elevators, escalators, amusement park rides, zip lines, or the bus and taxi systems.
