The National Ski Areas Association provides education and recommendations for the safe operation of aerial ropeways and funiculars across North America. NSAA is also the Secretariat of the American National Standards Institute Accredited Committee B77 (ANSI ASC B77) to develop a system of principles, specifications, and performance objectives, which will reflect the current state of the art of passenger ropeway design, operation and maintenance, and which will be acceptable for adoption by government agencies and others.
