Default wtf resorts that require a leash?

I was recently at Mount Brumont, in Quebec Canada and I was told that I needed a leash to get on the lift. They were only 6 dollars so it's not a huge deal to me, but I just though that this was ridiculous. Has anyone heard of a resort in the states requiring a leash?

Then to top things off, while I was inside buying the leash someone stole one of my brand new rome 390 ankle straps. Not both mind you, just one. Talk about a shitty day

I know some mountains over here in the New England area still do this. Jay Peak I believe is one of them.. but I've never seen it enforced.. the leash concept is pretty outdated now a days.

Do you look like a dog? That could be a reason.

Leashes aren't really needed. I never wear one and have never been hassled about it.

edit: sorry about the anke strap that's a real bummer.

Jiminy Peak requires one. They follow me around going, "Do you have a leash? Where's your leash? Got a leash? Let me see your leash."

Honestly, I put one on and clip it to itself.

The best method for avoiding getting hassled to use a leash is to use a leash.

I personally use 2 leashes just incase I take off my leash and somehow forget to grab my board my backup leash will save it from flying away. But sometimes I worry about what will happen if I undo my backup leash and forget to hold on to my board

Well I went to one resort where I needed a leash which I bought for $5.

I just strapped it onto the bindings and left it there.

Seems a lot of places around the north east "require" them. I see signs at most places I go about them. I just clip it to a hole in my high back and no one is the wiser.
