New adaptive sit-skiers are not only faced with the daunting task of (re)learning how to ski, but also figuring out how to load a chairlift with adaptive equipment. That once benign chair harmlessly rotating around its top wheel can now seem to have a vengeance for any unknowing and unprepared novice sit-skiers. We're here to bring you up to speed so that you can make loading the chair look easy in a sit-ski.
Chairlifts come in all shapes and sizes. High loading, thickly cushioned, plywood bottomed, sharply angled. As nice as it would be to have one uniform chairlift configuration that just isn't the case. Fortunately, there is a way to load most any chair that takes the guess work out of the classic hop and pray loading style.
This video features the handle grab style mentioned above along with a variety of loading styles and safety information regarding chairlift loading.
