Ok I have the answer! Snowboard pants with a built in bench seat built into the ass! It's perfect... Unload from the lift, pull the retractable legs down on your new BenchAss Pants (patent pending)...sit on your ass... And strap in. Just fold the legs up and go. They also double as protective slam shorts for tailbone injuries (or they cause tailbone injuries... Gotta work those bugs out).... Anyway...i'm off to the patent office bitches!!!

That's a solid gold idea... I'm thinking 3 version to start with:

1. The Original BenchAss Pant
2. The Fatass Pant +250lb edition, re-enforced for the heavy hitters
3. The Art Of Sitting - Travis Rice Pro Model (carbon fibre light weight, with limited edition pop-up book detailing the creation process of the pants)

All models of course with attachable beer holder/stash pack

I mistakingly said the "other word for goggles" thread was the worst thread ever, but I was mistaken. THIS is the worst, most pointless thread on the interwebs. Ever (including any thread on the hello kitty forum).

Hello Kitty Forum - Hello Kitty

Someone commented on how annoying it is that people chop snow away from their binding before strapping in?!

I'm pretty sure he's referring to people that chop a flat spot on the snow so they don't slide, not off their bindings. Either way it's still something dumb to bitch about.

Maybe initially, but now we're designing built-in benches with beer holders.

I get off the lift, get out of peoples way, sit down, clear the snow if there is any, and strap in. I could strap in standing up also, but I would rather KNOW my bindings are 100% secure before I go mach 10 down a black. Nothing worse then looking cool strapping in standing up just to get half way down a run, do a jump, and have your toe strap fall off because you hurried to slap it on. (I realize your ankle strap is doing most the work, but it still feels weird to lose a toe strap mid run) If I'm at a flat unloading area like dercum mountain at keystone then I'll just do it standing up. If its pally at a-basin, I sit down.

Seriously sitting down takes 10 seconds, and then your not in anyones way trying to strap in on the go. I hate getting off the lift behind someone who isn't a PRO at it, and they just get in my way as they struggle to keep there balance and strap in properly.

I don't really care how you strap in. If your going to sit down, get out of the way. If your going to do it standing up, GET OUT OF THE WAY.

As far as your ass getting wet, or cold.... get some better pants lol

p.s. I do however unstrap standing up while cruising through the lift line, since its a lot easier "for me"
