I did when I started but then again, I also memorized the skier alpine code.

After my first week, no.

No, but it's in their rules so I'd rather not go through the hassle of not having one and ski patrol noticing and stopping me.

been discussed numerous times, but generally it is almost redundant, so unless you are brand new and listen to what the man at the rental shop said and use it or your nazi mountain requires it (most dont) most people here dont use them. along with being a hassle to take on and off, another thing i dont like about em that i dont hear mentioned too much is that if you are riding the deep and your feet sink or get stuck or fall in a tree well or whatever and your board is buried on snow and you need to get it off, the clip on the leash can be a massive pain in the ass to find and un clip with your board under 2+ feet of snow.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

I was in argentina a couple years ago and they wouldn't let me up until I got a leash, it was quite obnoxious.
