Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P017
Title: 2012 Vermont Passenger Tramway Rules & Addendum to ANSI B.77.1-2011 with ANSI B.77.1a-2012 Supplement.
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Vermont Passenger Tramway Board, Department of Labor
Legal Authority: 31 V.S.A. § 704
Summary: This rule amends the current Vermont Passenger Tramway Code by replacing the ANSI B.77.1 – 2006 Code with the up to date ANSI B.77,1-2011 with ANSI B.77.1a-2012 Supplement Code. This rule sets minimum criteria and standards for the construction, operation, and maintenance of all Vermont ski lifts that operate for the public. The ANSI B.77.1-2011 Code reflects advances in ski lift technology and is accepted as the ski lift safety standard by other state code authorities having jurisdiction over Passenger Tramways, by insurance companies that provide coverage, by ski lift manufacturers and ski areas, and by the United States Forest Service. The Vermont Passenger Tramway Code Addendum has been revised to cover those items that are not addressed by the B. 77.1-2011/2012 Code.
Persons Affected: Ski areas, ski area operators, lift manufacturers, lift installers, skiers and users of lifts.
Economic Impact: Vermont ski areas, Vermont ski area operators and lift manufacturers & installers. 1. Regarding the ANSI B.77, there is no economic impact for these groups since their insurance carriers and the U.S. Forest Service already required that the ski lifts meet the requirements of the current ANSI B.77 standard. 2. The Vermont Addendum to the B.77 may result in some additional costs for the ski areas. These costs are primarily for additional inspections and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of grips and hangers. The estimated costs to fulfill the requirement for any additional 20 sampling of chair hangers will be approximately $100 per chair to remove carriers from the line, disassemble the grips, clean and prepare for NDT, test, inspect and reassemb
