Here are 4 steps to ride a chairlift safely without the embarrassment of a potential faceplant.

  1. Shuffle or skate to get on to the green waiting line in the snow with your pole straps off your wrists so that if they tangle, you won’t be pulled down. 
  2. Once the previous chair moves in front of you, shuffle to the red line in the snow to wait for the next chair.
  3. Look over your shoulder and sit down when the chair touches your legs. 
  4. Pull the bar down. Voila. Enjoy the ride.
