Use the upper strap of your right binding...much easier on your boots.

Resurrecting an old thread because I'm interested in this as well. The bottom lace on my boot was cut through by my edge recently. I rest the edge on top of my free foot on the chair lift. When I'm able to, I use the back of my binding but that is not always possible (like when you are in the middle of a 6 person chair and space is tight).

I keep my edges sharp and need to find something because I'm shredding my boots on every lift up.

I've sometimes thought about just bringing a bungee cord and hooking one end to the free binding and either holding the other end or hooking it to the safety bar. The lifties would probably have a stroke, though.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

I think I found a product that will solve my problem. It is no longer in production but I contacted the inventor and he is sending me one to try. I'll be sure to report back with pictures once I receive it.

Why arent you guys detuning your tips? If you have this problem it tells me you aren't detuning your contact points which should always be done. And if you are detuning them and not rounding over the tips you're idiots. File that shit...problems solved.

Or do what I do:
clip in the toe of your free leg while on the lift so that the board hangs even from both feet. Skiers might not like it, but they don't really like riding the lift with us as it is.
