Snowboarding for Beginners : Getting Into Lift Chair in Snowboarding

Snowboarding for Beginners : Getting Into Lift Chair in Snowboarding


Hi, I’m Kevin Byford with the Ski and Snowboard
Schools of Aspen on behalf of the Expert Village. So practicing getting off the chair. You want
to make sure your board, again, is pointing straight in the direction you’re going to
travel. Get your butt toward the edge of the seat if you’re getting ready to get off. Put
your free foot on the stomp pad, and as you approach the stand up area, you’re going to
push off the chair, stand up, glide away. So here I am, getting on the chair. Nice and
balanced, waiting for the chair. Board is pointed away from the chair, going to sit
down, lift the nose of the board up, and off we go safely. Don’t forget the bar down. Okay,
so getting of the chair, making sure again the board is pointed straight, I shuffle to
edge of the chair, put my free foot on the stomp pad, pants inside, and I’m ready to
push off.

    actually, the first time i went, i tripped, and fell all the time on the chairlift. So, it is kinda helpful, but then again, maybe i just relly need to practice in that area 🙂

    ive been to big hills and im not good at snowboarding at all i get scared of going to fast and bail…..but ive only use t-bone lifts

  11. Belinda Byron says:

    You should probably get one. Your foot will most likely slip off the board and you'll fall on your ass, not fun.

  12. Moist Stem says:

    @kinkyvietgurl
    How was it?

  21. EverythingisFire says:

    @weirdashun
    It's common like if people are hanging out right in front of the chair lifts. Just turn like you would if you were riding down that hill. Either lean onto your toes or on your heels and you'll glide in that direction.

  22. Trang Tran says:

    @EverythingisFire
    It went really well, I had my friends there to guide me as well.

  23. A Sinclair says:
