    Usually pull the bar down footrest is nice and I figure 99.9% of the time there is no need but that one time when the lift does an E stop or that big gust of wind comes better safe than sorry. If others on chair will allow them to choose but atleast at Whiteface most people bring them down for the footrest, and also some of those chairs(Summit Quad in particular) can get WINDY!

    I always use the safety bar also. Have seen a few people fall from a lift and not a good site.
    Go for the snow!!!!!!

    Do you use the safety bar when riding a chairlift?

    Today I was on a lift at Wachusett with a mom and a kid who was 4 or 5 and tiny. He was sitting so far forward on the edge of the seat I thought he might slip and fall thru even with the bar down. Very sketchy but she didn't seem worried...

    I usually put the bar down, see no reason not to.
