About strapping in standing up: i've done this for years and it always works: Face uphill, board at right angles to the fall line and in front of your free foot. Lift the board with your strapped-in foot and whack the heelside edge in the snow a few times to make a shallow groove or trench the length of your board. Then put your toe-side edge in the trench. You can now stand on your board and bend down and strap in your free foot. If you've dug the trench right, your board will be flat and stable, and present no problems with balance. It may take a little experimentation to get the trench right, but it sure ain't rocket science.

I'm considering changing to a Cinch binding anyway, just to make it faster.
