Are you guys from out west? Whenever I ride in Michigan I see pretty much everyone sitting down to strap in. Whenever I get off a lift there I'm like "oh shit!" because there's usually a crap loading of boarders sitting around all over the place.
I'm in the east as well, so it's not just a western thing. I'm not sure the sitting down thing is a specific strap in thing. Seems to mainly a social thing: get off the lift, sit down in a group, text, chat, etc. Rinse and repeat ad nauseum. Like teenagers at a mall. I don't get the impression that they all have to sit down, that's just how they expect to spend their day.
