How not to board a ski lift

Slipping while you're getting on, bailing halfway up on the button lift, taking out your neighbour on the way off at the top (snowboarders, this one's for you): we've all been there. Rope tows, button lifts, chairlifts, they're all great inventions and they've revolutionised the sport of skiing, but sometimes they're more difficult than they look. What's the worst bail you've ever had on a lift? Does it compare to any of these gems?

1. Take out your neighbour

2. Pause to enjoy the view

3. Make life easier for the lift

4. Bring the fence with you

5. Use the T-bar as a handle

6. Do some fancy tricks

7. Just... Um.

8. Jump off whenever you feel like it

9. Hang around too close to the top of the lift

10. But most importantly: don't give up!

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
