Cool what are hills policy's on Snowboarders leaving there boots in there bindings

Hi

I'm just curious what ski Hill policy's are with snowboarders leaving there feet in there bindings when getting on the lift.

I understand having 3 people on the lift but what if your alone and go to the hill for the day


I was on the hill a few days ago and with maybe 15 other people there skiing and was the only person i saw sitting getting strapped in,well all the skiers just rode down the hill.

I tonight was wondering are Snowboarders even allowed to keep there bindings on

I'm going next week again to get a few runs in at the terrain park/hill and was just wondering

Thanks

ive always wondered this too. I think it would be much easier to ride the lift if i was full strapped in. I usuallly ride the lift alone anyways because the people in line before/after me are with their group of friends. I unstrap my back foot just because i always have, but now im wondering.

When I'm with a group of people I always unstrap my back foot as there's usually three of us,but it's so nice going to the hill during the day instead of always at night.

mostly frowned upon but if your alone on the lift you can always strap back in i guess.

That's definitely frowned upon where I work and will usually result in a pretty good scolding.

Usually I see people get yelled at for it.

What's the benefit?

Huh. Maybe that's why the lifties gave me the stink eye today when I did it once (only because there was no line). It was sure nice just riding off the lift and going, like I was on skis or something.

I do it alot whenever there's no line at my hill. I've never been frowned upon, scolded, spat upon, severely beaten, anything. But then again I don't go to some ginormous resort though.
