Rear foot removal on chairlifts
 
Can anyone tell me if there is a Regulation that dictates that we snowboarders have to remove our rear foot from the binding when riding a chairlift? Is this something that is enforced by each individual resort OR is there a governing body that has mandated that all Resorts have to enforce this rule?
Is the only reason for this foot removal rule just to ensure that snowboarders can 'walk' to the loading point of the lift?

not just a rule, it's the law. you can go to jail.

There's actually a law dictating how to queue and ride a chairlift as a snowboarder? :blink:

Edit: Are you trolling us? :o

nah hes being sarcastic.
I most of time when my local resort is not busy, just ride straight onto the lift.
when it gets busy they would ask you to take one foot out so you dont slide around if the loading area is not completely flat.

Someone clearly fails at the Internet. CassMT for the WIN!

I can tell you why the lifties like people to do it... Because we need to stop you to check your tickets. And we don't like stopping the lift, and picking your heavy ass up off the ground because you caught an edge on the carpet. The same goes for those two planking Narps.

What if you can't remove your rear foot due to an overuse of Loctite on your bindings?????

it's enforced at the individual resort.

some lift operators don't care.

some lift operators actually yell at you.

many states have actually laws about the ski/snowboard industry from the operators to the individual users. Though I haven't seen anything that mandates the rear foot removal from the binding. It's just one of those "good practices" people try to encourage you do to, even though there are a lot of snowboarder crashes getting off of the chair lift

CassMT is correct, my buddy got 3 months of probation for violating this repeatedly. He can't travel out of state now, which sucks, because there is no snow left here but there is in Oregon.
