+1 for the no cold ass.

One time I was strapping in on some uneven terrain, and this pack of kids sitting there watched me making a little ledge in the snow so I could do it standing. Later in the day I noticed some of them trying it too. Trendsetter, I am.

Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.

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.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. I think they only do it because they're slow at strapping in, so they feel they might as well.

This is a tasty burger.

This thread is ridiculous, I can't wait for the sequel: The special trick way of carrying your board so you can walk faster to the ticket window.

No problem. But I didn't realize that now, apparently, most people new to snowboarding strap in standing up.

And so, this thread has turned into more of a joke than good advice.

That's pretty sad. Oh well. Next time I'll post on how to strap in while standing up on a chairlift. I'm absolutely certain that not many snowboarders know how to do that!

This is a tasty burger.

I don't get it. Is strap in speed a thing people aim for?

It takes maybe 10 seconds to strap in once you get the hang of it, why the big race?

No, but it's just cool to be able to strap in almost just as fast with regular bindings as some one with speed-entry bindings.

It helps because if your friends are skiers or have speed-entry, they don't have to wait around for you. That was my situation, and it used to suck for me until I figured this method out. Now they don't have to wait. Any snowboarder in that kind of situation is really who this thread is aimed at.
