The Tsugaike Ropeway (栂池ロープウェイ, Tsugaike Rōpuwei) is Japanese aerial lift line in Otari, Nagano, operated by Tsugaike Gondola Lift (栂池ゴンドラリフト, Tsugaike Gondora Rifuto). The Tōkyū Group company also operates Tsugaike Gondola (Gondola Lift Eve), a gondola lift line connected to Tsugaike Ropeway. The two lines are collectively called Tsugaike Panorama Way (栂池パノラマウェイ, Tsugaike Panorama Wei). Although it departs from Tsugaike Kōgen Ski Resort (栂池高原スキー場), Tsugaike Ropeway closes in winter. It transports tourists to Tsugaike Natural Park, mainly in summer. Tsugaike Gondola Lift, on the other hand, openes whole year, and mainly transports skiers.
