At age ten my parents attached my feet to a pair of skis, pointed me in the direction of a ski instructor and then sprinted off to the tubing hill. As a beginner, I learned that one of the most intimidating aspects of the sport was getting on and off of the ski lift.
Today, as an experienced skier and snowboarder, as well as a lift operator at Park City Mountain Resort, I realize that riding a chairlift is not nearly as difficult as I first thought it was. Watching hundreds of people get onto the lift every day, I’ve seen just about every simple mistake that can be made while loading (getting onto) or unloading (getting off of) the chair. So here are some simple tips to keep in mind in order to have a successful ride on a chairlift.
As Lift Operators at PCMR, our top priority is your safety while riding the chairlift. We also want you to feel comfortable with your riding experience, so keep these tips in mind and enjoy the ride.
