The Magic Carpet Ski Lift is a new conveyor lift product which provides a high capacity surface lift with a friendly design of virtually any length and for any rider. A magic carpet resembles a conveyor belt in which skiers board at the bottom with skis facing forwards, and are pulled uphill by the moving belt. Keeping snow off of the belt can be a problem.

The ski could be a little slippery when you stand on top of Magic Carpet and the risk of falling backwards, magic carpets are limited to shallow grades. As a result of this, their slow speed, limited distance and capacity they are only ever used on beginner terrain. Magic Carpets are often considered to be the least threatening ski lift by beginners as there is no fear of altitude, and the perceived risk of falling down is less than that of handle tow lifts.
