How are the heavy ropes put on the ropeway?

This process of the construction of a ropeway is called "pulling the rope". As it is not possible to start right away with the heavy and thick rope, a thin and light rope is pulled on the ropeway first. This happens either manually, using rope winches or with the help of helicopters. Then, a thicker rope is spliced or knotted onto the thinner one and, consequently, pulled by means a of rope winch. This procedure is repeated with ropes that increase in thickness until the final rope with the correct diameter lies on the sheave assemblies of the ropeway towers.
