How to Get Off the Chairlift – Snowboard Tutorial Video

This video will give you some tips for getting off a chairlift on your snowboard. Getting off a Chairlift for the first time can be a challenge, but if you do a few things on your snowboard to prepare, the chairlift can be easy. You have to ride the chairlift with only one foot strapped into your snowboard. So before you get on the chairlift you can practice your one foot snowboarding down a short hill.
The first step is to find a hill to practice your one foot snowboarding. You want a very short, gentle slope that flattens out at the bottom.
With one foot strapped in turn and point your snowboard downhill. Next place your free foot in the center of your board against your back binding. Pushing your foot against your binding will keep your foot from sliding off the snowboard.
As your snowboard begins to move keep yourself balanced with your knees bent, back straight and head looking where you want to go.
Your hands should be over the nose and tail of your snowboard. This will keep your board pointed in a straight line.
Once you’ve reach the bottom of the slope, stop yourself by placing your free foot halfway off the board, and drag your toe in the snow.
Practices riding with one foot until you have it dialed, and then you’ll be ready for the chairlift. Standing up with your free foot against your binding, knees bend, back straight, hands over your snowboard, dragging your toe in the snow to come to a stop.

My name is Kevin Pearce and I'm the creator of Snowboardprocamp. Since 2011 I've been producing snowboard tutorials for beginner to advanced riders. I taught snowboarding for over ten years and it was the best experience of my life. My reason for creating Snowboardprocamp was so that I could share that experience and make snowboarding accessible to people. I was full-time snowboard coach in Whistler B.C for the eight years. I taught on the mountain five days a week, freeriding with students and teaching them tricks in the terrain park. In the terrain park I have experience teaching everything from beginner tricks in the small park to more advanced tricks on larger jumps. I have extensive alpine knowledge, where I took students through secret powder stashes and off cliff drops. I'm also very experienced teaching beginner riders on their first day and progressing them to an advanced level. Whistler was a great place for me to develop my riding and teaching skills because of the size of our mountains, the amount of snow we get each year, and our long season from November to May.
