After "the bar" thread, I thought of another thing that irks me on the lift. Why do the liftees insist you remove your pack? (other than the obvious answer - so you're not pitched forward to get klonked by the moron lowering the bar). Let's see... I've got two ski poles to juggle, one or two kids to help load, and now I've got a backpack half dangling from one arm that throws everything off balance. I guess they don't want you to get it caught on the chair, but it seems to me way more dangerous to yourself and others to be dealing with the extra hand luggage. And if you get four people on the chair juggling packs? Yikes!
