    When you buy your "new" lift on Craigslist you take what you can get.

    Just slide your ski poles across the kid's lap and through the armrest, hold them firmly, and voila...safety bar!

    BTW I hear they are installing new payphones in the lodge too.

    Teamwork makes the dream work when it comes to chairlift safety!

    In a ten year period (2002-2012) in Colorado, 71% of falls from chairlifts were from lifts equipped with "safety bars".

    Yeahman gets it, the ski pole safety bar is far more secure for kids (or highly insecure adults) than any restraint bar I've ever seen on a lift.

    Not a very useful statistic without also providing the % of chairs with/without a safety bar. Like say if 95% of chairs have a bar but 30% of falls are on chairs without them.

    Yeah that stat is inconclusive, however it does reveal that people do indeed fall off of lifts equipped with them. There is plenty of space for people to slide between them and the seat. I think a big deal is made of them, and they do little to provide the security that handwringers like to think they do.

    I ride the lifts with kids in lessons often. The vast majority have no problem with the lifts at Snowbowl, even those so small that they need to be lifted onto the chair.

    What percentage of those falls involved season pass holders? That would be a real metric. Probably under 10. Tourons gonna touron.

    Those new 8 packs at big sky have safety bars that come down automatically, and it'd take some serious contortions to fall out of the chair with the bar down. I suspect those sort of things will become more common.

    I'm pretty sure they can stay open if you push/hold them right after loading. At least that's what I remember from Ram Charger.

    It is BS so the chair may have been broken when it was installed or shortly after.

    Is it a secret? So much the opposite that I'm asking a dumb question?

    $578 for an Adult (Facebook link above, price in header photo). Can't remember the Snowbowl site price, I'm thinking it saves about $50

    If you buy with a second adult they pay $522ish. So together you could each save $86, so that's a nice positive to it.

    Keeping a watch on this storm brewing up north. Could be a rare September snow event in the valley

    I'd say almost 12 out of the last 12 years that I've lived in MT, I've seen snow before my birthday (10/13). Not usually this much though, woo!

    If my flatmate and I walk in holding hands, do we qualify for the second adult pass? I'll drop a "honey" or two. Surely, no one will want to pry too deep.
    Then again, this IS Missoula.
