Colorado Mountain College, the nation’s premier Ski Area Operations program, has worked with all levels of the ski industry for more than 30 years to provide solid and innovative training for jobs and careers. The Ropeway Maintenance Technician program is a result of this experience.

Program Benefits

Collaborating with major mountain resorts, ropeway manufacturers, and professional organizations, Colorado Mountain College has designed a program that can:

  • Prepare your company for anticipated ropeway transport safety regulations.
  • Help ensure safe and well-maintained transport systems.
  • Provide training delivered on-site via the internet.
  • Enhance the skills of your current employees with Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
  • Help you attract and retain new employees.

Mechanical and Electrical Specialization

Ropeway Technician students can specialize in two areas: mechanical or electrical. Both specialties include hands-on work experience at the student’s workplace supervised by a workplace mentor.

Credit or Non-Credit Options

When completed for credit, the program provides the student with a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency from the State of Colorado. Students can also take the program as non-credit. This option provides Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) that are valuable for training documentation. Students who complete the program as non-credit will receive a certificate of completion from Colorado Mountain College. Either option meets the requirements for Related Instruction needed for completion of the US Department of Labor’s Apprenticeship Training program. You may also choose to select specific courses that meet your training needs.

The Ropeway Technician program is administered by Ski Area Operations at the Timberline Campus in Leadville.
