Do I need a leash?

How important is a snowboard leash? And how big of a pain is one with a lock?

You don't need one unless the hill requires it. Very few hills require a leash these days because they realize that snowboards rarely come off the riders feet. Skiis have much more potential to come off and hit someone on the hill.

Get one of those leashes with the lock in them.

Leashes were pretty much mandatory back in the step-in/clip-in days.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Some hills that have step-in bindings require them on their rentals.

I don't really use mine. I've never lost my board so I didn't really see a need for it. I suppose it could be one of those things you're glad you used if you needed it, but you probably won't ever need it.

Really? I rarely see them for sale these days, except with beginners bindings. Maybe the hills in your area require them and thats why they sell well.

Salesmen will also try to get you to buy one if you don't know any better, it increases their units per transaction and makes them look good.
