Default Where do I attach my leash?

I looked, can't find this anywhere....Where do I attach my leash to? I was told at the mountain that it is to keep my board from falling from the lift if it were to detach from my bindings or whatever, but I have no idea where to start with attachment points.

I have Burton Moto boots and K2 Indy bindings, if that matters.

Thanks in advance.

As long as your board is connected to your front foot boot in an unobtrusive way you should be fine.

Well if they require you have a leash, you loop it through some part of the bindings that won't cause your boots a pressure point or anything, then some leashes round around your leg and connect in a loop, and some are meant to be clipped to your bootlaces, or the pull tabs on the back of the boot, whatever works for you.

they serve no real purpose and are just a remnant of skier paranoia

attach one end to the hook on your dog's collar & then grasp the other end in your hand.

Alright, that all makes sense.

I'll clip it to my bindings and to the loop on the back of my boots. Doesn't make much sense, if the board fell it would probably rip the tab off, but it's the mountain's rules.

Thanks all!

There is little danger of a board falling from the lift. If the binding is securely fasten to the boot on the ride up I donít see it happening. In all my years on the slopes I have yet to see that occur.

However, I have seen several boards careen down the slope from some careless numbskull who took the board off for some reason at the top and it (the board) got away from them. Very Dangerous.

I prefer the long leash that fastens to the lower leg. Easy to put on and take off, and the lift operators can easily see that you are using one.

I do have a board that has one of the coiled coated wire leashes. Fastens to the back of my K2 Cinch at one end and clips to a metal ring threaded through my laces at the other. Very strong and very easy.

As someone who works at a resort, I encourage everyone to use one. Spend a little money and get a nice one while you are at it!

Whatever.....how hard is it to use one?

Outdated? Not. Too inconvienient perhaps......
