Up or Down?

When you get on a lift do you put the bar down or keep it up?

pcv loadletter?... what does that even mean?


anywho... put the damn thing down... whats the purpose not to? don't understand some people apparently. the appeal to look "cool" outweighs all sense of safety. sounds super fun.

sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...

Our lifts don't even have the bars, but if they did I'd probably put it down

The bar is always up. Hell, Baker doesn't even put bars on the lifts. I don't think they are there for safety, but rather for comfort. Burton, you've never watched Office Space I take it?

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

At the mountain that I go to everyone puts the bar down. The bar has one of those board rest things attached no reason to tire out your leg. Plus its a 8-9 min ride on a double or triple for 700 vertical feet so your on it alot. If I'm in the double by myself(happens alot boarding on Mondays) I sit almost lounged across the chair/bar. Plus they'd probably get mad if you didn't I'm not going to tempt my day.

yeah... meant 'pc loadletter'... but messed it up.. glad someone knew what i was saying...

you guys have lifts with no party bar? wow... now, does that mean they are older and more basic, or the other way around and they are super new and don't need the bars?

sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...

Slaps hand on forehead, lol, it's been a long day

Anyways, yeah our lifts are older, that's probably why. Our runs are short too so that may have something to do with it in the resorts eyes.

tooscoops, given that it's Mt. Baker I'm going to say that they are older lifts, but they are still quads and have no bar. At the bigger resorts most of the lifts have bars, although I know all of the double chair lifts I have ridden have no bars.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Baker, chair 1 is a new lift as of 2 years ago...(too bad the old 2 seater and off ramp was replaced...was entertaining to watch tourist go )....no bars...thank you very much...bars are for drinking...idk but suspect that the local wisdom is something like:

"frick you're in the holy land...better know how to ride a lift"

"it'd be funny and suck for you to fall to your death off the chair"

"falling off the chair is the least of your worries"

"there's no honor of falling off the chair to your death...dumb@ss"

"no bar, no worries, go somewhere else"

"there's enough cliffs, trees and gapers to hit my head on...don't need a bar"

"when I hit my head on the bar...its time to go get my board and boots to go to Baker"
