After having read the topic bout not being allowed to have backpacks on while sitting in a chairlift I began wondering if ski-fields also start on forbidding people to put the t-bar between the legs for a comfier ride. Normally I never had probs doing this or other things on the t-bars (like using it as a drag-lift or changing positions with a second person)- however nowadays there are more and more skifields in my region where the lifties stop the lift and tell me to use the t-bar the "normal" way. (which I do if there is a que anyway). That is about the same bullshit as forcing you to step out of the binders on a snowboard. (do it even if it is uncomfy sometimes just because I can't bother to unstrap on softies). Or moaning at you because of not using the unload area but stepping out 10m before. So sometimes I now have to change my sitting position of the lift after being out of sight of the lifties and change it back before arriving - which can be quite difficult if there is no flat part.
