The idea is that sometimes we only have one foot attached (on the lifts, getting off the lifts, etc) and if god forbid one malfunction happened to that one binding that your foot is in, the snowboard could go down the mountain and hurt someone. Whereas skiis lock up if they get thrown off.

Jiminy peak in Massachusetts, U.S. had that rule. I thought it was just cause they favor skiiers.
