The Ski Lift is an obstacle, used as the only obstacle in the second round of Winter Wipeout (Season 4).

It’s a similar obstacle to the Sweeper. The twelve contestants start together on floating platforms 10 feet above the icy water as they move in a circular motion. They must hold onto the handlebars and lift themselves over the sweeper arms to avoid being knocked into the icy water. If it wasn’t difficult enough, the sweeper arms will rise higher and higher. Additionally, a snow machine is placed before the first sweeper arm. The last six contestants standing move on to the next round, and the last person standing wins a $1,000 bonus.

After winter had subsided, in Spring Wipeout of the same season, it was replaced by the Scareousel.
