Riding the Chairlift

Mike Doyle

When you're on the chairlift, make sure that you keep the safety bar down, keep your ski tips up, hold on to your poles, and enjoy the ride! Many ski resorts have signs that tell you when to raise the safety bar, but if not, don't raise the bar until the chairlift is nearing the unloading station. However, make sure the bar is completely raised by the time you are at the unloading station.
