Anyone know what the Snowtime resorts policy is on tandem skis? If I have one ski on and someone else has the other, will that present a lift problem?

I can't answer this officially, but I will ask the patrol guys when I see them in 2 weeks. We have had people ride the lift wearing only one ski. Racers and instructors do this occasionally.

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is "riding tandem?"

JCHobbes, think of a tandem bicycle.

And JohnL, you realise that the only way that can work is if one lets the woman drive. Hmmm. Perhaps not on a first date?

Which reminds me, time to score another set of demo bindings.

Are you talking about 2 people on one pair of skis? This is done on telemark skis at festivals and it is pretty cool if the skiers are good. I've seen it done and people who do it tell me that the skier in the rear is the one with the control. It doesn't look quite cool enough to make me trust my 64 yr. old bones to someone else's skill. I'd rather break my own leg if it's all the same.

for race team practices at roundtop we go up the lift with one ski occasionally. im not sure if they would allow the public to do this or not.

Comprex,

I asked the Whitetail patrol guys today about this. The ruling was "unconventional" equipment. They would ask you to switch over to regular skis. But they had to think about it before giving me an answer. I got the feeling that if a major manufacturer made a "tandem" ski, then they would allow it as "conventional" gear. The discussion went along the lines of "a mono ski would be 'conventional', but no, this would fall under the heading of 'unconventional'". I did not ask, but it might be ok for pond skimming!
