Ancient One I agree that with most bindings the leash is pointless. I did once have my board start to come off on the lift ( Flow binding malfunction ). I was glad for the leash that day. Wearing the "stealth" leash has never been a big deal for me.

highme One of the first things I taught my kids was to flip it over, bindings side down, when it's not strapped to your feet.

Kevin137 This is funny, when my stepson started learning, one of the 1st thing they did when hallway up the bunny slope was kick the board away when he 1st sat down... He went running after it automatically... It teaches the kids right from the start that shit happens and to be careful... He has never lost his board, in 3 seasons...!

Problem is, that when you aren't strapped into at least one binding, you won't have the leash attached either?????

This is when anybody can accidentally lose their board!!!!!

highme Weekends were for making money teaching kids to side slip & do the falling leaf.

Though line cut in uniform was a pretty rad perk.

How long ago was this? I lived in Big Bear & instructed at Summit the winters of 92-93 and rode there for 3 or 4 years before that.

I don't miss that zoo too much.
95-96. Bear is a shit show. 45 min weekend lift line waits. Fuuuuuuck dat.

highme The Skier's Safety Code says you have to have something that prevents runaway equipment. It's also been put into law in many US states where you can ride a chairlift. I expect the only time it would be really enforced was if your runaway board injured somebody.

Mizu Kuma They used to enforce it here in Australia, but I reckon for the last 4 years or so years I've never been asked!!!!! (Maybe more, can't remember it's been that long)

I think they've woken up to the fact that they're a pretty pointless piece of rubbish!!!!!

Like others have said, if ya board gets away from ya, it won't be because ya haven't got a leash on it!!!!!
