Ah, memories.:wink: Don't feel bad, they had to stop the new conveyor lift for me at Greek this year, my pole got stuck in the gate, I yanked it through, it landed on the conveyor, I bent down to pick it up and couldn't grab it. It was probably because I don't bend at the waist very well these days, or the stiffness of my new mittens, I'm going with the mittens.They don't show how to get on chairlift that has a moving floor. Fail.
They should have a video for the t-bar for snowboarders. I've seen snowboarders just hold the T with their hands, which can get pretty tricky seeing as that lift goes up a pretty steep slope for a surface lift
I hook the poma between my legs all the time when I use it. When I get to the loading area I strap into my bindings fully first like I would before heading down the mountain and then place the poma disc between my legs. A little harder than doing it with skis, but still fairly easy. If your back foot is out of the binding it just isn't gonna work. You sway too much left and right and bounce around too much on a board and the board is gonna slip out from under the back foot. If you just grab the bar with your arms you're going down also. The first few times I attempted it and failed it was because I grabbed the bar or didn't get both feet locked into the bindings. Pain!:lol:Or Snowboarders using a poma lift! Cannot hook it between your legs so under the arm is commonly used. My snowboarding son hates poma lifts.
