On that subject, when the guy was trying to get up heelside on the slope, I yelled down from the lift that he should dig a small trench with his heelside edge then brace the snowboard in the trench when getting up. This helps a lot, not only to keep the snowboard from slipping downhill, but also gets the snowboard a little lower relative to your body, making it easier to get your body over the board.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
