Flat area. Stand. Bend Over.

Or a bench. Or a groomer shelf.

never thought about a bench.. whats a groomer shelf?

when i stand at the top of a run in the flat spot i sometimes end up sliding just a lil bit and that sucks..

i tend to dig the front of my board into the snow and that helps a lil

Basically if theres an incline your looking to catch your back edge in the snow, keep kicking the back edge down to create yourself a little ridge to rest the back edge of your board on and it'll stay still as you bend down to strap in. Make sure as you lean over you keep the board flat however, because if you tip it onto the front edge its just gonna pop the back edge back out of the ridge and you'll start the sideslip.

Or you can be far too extreme and do them up as your going along.

Hahaha I do it while I ride, but I do have flows.

Anywho, as Snowjoe already said just dig one side of your board into the snow, lean what to whatever side is in the snow, strap in, jump out and ride
