Okay, I just googled "ski lift footrest snowboard" to try and find a pic of people doing what I'm talking about. What I found was way more funny!
Patent #2: (apparently this is a ski rest that you bring with you?!?)
Patent #2: (above mentioned ski rest in the requisite FANNY PACK)
WTF #1: (This is a snowboard connected to a twin screw auger that propels you uphill... )
WTF #2: (Mar river glens single chair, I want to ride this one day!)

|Loftness||See I usually love using the foot bar to rest my board on. And if I'm not in the mood, or I'm in an awkward spot on the chair (like the middle, which I avoid like the plague) i just let it dangle under the bar.|

How is it in North America people can't manage to handle a snowboard and footrest without some agonizing discomfort and aren't able to bring down a safety bar without knocking one another upside the head?
While in Europe, no one complains about footrests and we can fill a six seater with people from six different countries that don't speak a common toungue without causing some sort of brain injury as someone brings down the safety bar.

You dont put your board on the foot rest? Just tweak it out forward like you are doing a sweet tailgrab and its comfy as!
Those sorts of lift bars are rare though. Happy when i find a lift with them!

I've no problem with those who prefer to use the bar due to fear of heights or thoughts of plummeting to their death. In fact, I was seated next to a girl on a board the other day who white-knuckle clutched the bar as it halted and swung. So I decided to distract her with off-topic conversation. If you're scared, I get it. But most (skiers) seem to use it as a foot rest.
And Pouts. Of course you lower the bar every time. OCD to an extreme, right?
