    I'm a snowboarding instructor… I can attest that I see these alot as well. Although the slouched lean carrys over to toeside pretty much all the time. I am constantly having to tell my students stand up. I would have to disagree a bit on the chair position. Too straight of legs cause a lot of chatter but I have found the optimum stance when you don't need a metric ton of chatter absorbition (ie beginners on moguls) is knees bent with almost a back arch standing straight and acting like you are slouching slightly backwards. I know it sounds counter intuitive and like it will make you fall but I have found people don't register in their minds what is actually straight and if you act like you are leaning backwards it just straightens you out a bit. Your body posture and position will shift alot while trying to figure out your balance and traversing the mountain you can get away with a more dramatic lean forwards especially with quick turns at high speeds but that is generally the most flexible position to deal with terrain changes upper body wise. It is why you will see most intermediate and expert boarders using it while traversing faces at a cruise.

    Why are the chair lifts SOOO expensive. $120 for like 8 hours and online is $100 for 8 hours. That's a load of BS.

    I do a lot of long boarding and I lean back a lot to avoid getting thrown off at speed when I hit a rock, crack or bump in the road. It's made snowboarding very difficult for me. Good tip on keeping your hand forward.

    Excellent tutorial (again!) ! 3:23-falling off the lift……here's how interested EVERY resort is in keeping newbies involved in the sport: not a one of them has an old chair set up in such a fashion as to provide a practice place to refine the chairlift-exit technique. Thus, many so frustrated by lift-phobia NEVER come back after their initial foray into the sport. It actually represents a considerable loss for the industry, "all-told".
