How to ride it safely -
1. Check there is a seat for you to sit on.
2. Get in position.
3. Sit on seat.
Looks like he forgot step 1.
Fox, I am not so sure that's right.
The FIS 10 ruleshttp://www.fis-ski.com/uk/insidefis/...0fisrules.html
And that's "law".
It says :
2. Drag lifts, chair lifts and other machines in continuous movement
Subject to national, legal and administrative measures, the operator must
a) that the machines are maintained in good working order by sufficient number of
c) the management, and, as necessary, protection of the queues of waiting
g) the staff of the operator has a general duty to assist users, especially children,
and in the case of obvious difficulty, or at the request of the user;
h) to provide notice boards describing how users should behave on the lift.
i) A user must have sufficient physical and technical skill to use machines in
continuous movement so that he can be pulled up the track normally.
j) In addition to the elementary rules of care the user should pay attention to the
directions, written or oral, of the operator.
So, the only duty of the user is point j...
Where have you found that "point 7" ?
Is that in the American or British version?
Sure they should write and ratify only one version, let's close all of "them" in one room and lock the door until that happens (and many other things)
And then it says interesting things about ski schools, but that's matter for another thread
