Default Has anyone stood up on the chair lift & rode off?

Last year @ Hemlock I told a lifty fried of mine that I was going to stand up on one of the chairs & ride off, He didn't seem to give a shit.
Last run of the day about half way up the Green chair I stood up, put the back of my board on the back rest & the front on the seat.
I thought it might be hard to do my back binding up, but it was surprisingly easy. The top of the chair fit nicely under my arm.

I guess my buddy didn't understand what I tried to explain, when he seen me standing on the chair he came flyin' out of the hut, arms a flailing.
I still had to reasure him that it was all good & not to stop the chair.

As I went by him he said "your gonna kill yourself". Not like that. But oh ya, if you kept standing when the cable hits the wheel, it'll pop your head, arms & any thing else that is between cable & pulley.

For years I've been doing both my bindings up on the chair, most of the time they are'nt payin attention, the odd time I'll get in shit.
I then sit on the chair until the runout drops, to about 8-10 feet then jump into the nice transition of the runout.

It was sweet, the way your board sits on the backrest & seat makes a perfect 45% angle to ride off.
I'm not sudjusting anyone try it. I am really retarded.

Why? Why would you want to do that. Injure yourself doing something cool like a rail or jump, not the CHAIRLIFT.

IT's pretty stupid to begin with. But why the fuck would you stand up on the lift and then jump off?

And why the fuck do you stand up on the backrest to put your bindings on. You are fucking retarded. Just put them on sitting down.
