OU812 The worst is when you lean back too early on a T-bar and the cable isn't fully extended yet and splat, down on my ass. Speaking from experience here, fucking embarrassing lol

Manicmouse I had so many disasters on T-bars as a beginner that I used to ride them by myself to avoid taking out people

Some T-bars have a really aggressive acceleration when the cable goes taut and that just throws people.

OU812 That Portillo lift is crazy. I know someone who trains there in the off season for World Cup, gonna ask him about it next time I see him.

First time I snowboarded I had to use a T-bar lift, took me about 5-6 times till I got it right but once you get the balance its alright. Ran into problems though when the ground got uneven and ski tracks zig zagging but I was a complete noob. Haven't been on one since and avoid them at all cost haha.

MarshallV82 I just hook them behind my front leg and let it pull me up. It'll take a few tries to get it though. You'll look like a dumbass and get laughed at your first time. Just have fun with it.

When I rode the TBar at Castle Mtn in Alberta I'd let it pull me up. You could do rodeos on your way up the mountain in spots that it would slingshot you!
