I'm wondering if the button lift is like the Sunrise lift at Powder Mountain (Utah). You grab a pole, stick it between your legs and sit on a round plate and it pulls you up. I thought it was pretty scary when I went to use it the first time.
Hi Rachel! Button lift is like the drag lift with overhead rope and vertical cables with buttons that drag you along.. I know you're supposed to put the button between the legs, but I'm really struggling with balance that way and it's easier to put the button in the armpit and hold on to it :) Thanks for a warm welcome!
button lift- I'm thinking this is the Rope Tow in the US? Those things are killer on the arms! I think that even a 30 second slope is the best thing you can do- glad you are having fun. Enjoy the snow regardless how it got on the ground!

Hi everyone! Decided to join this team! I've recently joined a Ski&Snowboarding club at my Uni and find snowboarding sooo exciting! Well, we don't have much of a real snow over here, so have to survive on the artificial slopes for now.. But even so, it's still amazing! I'm wondering where the hell was I earlier and why it took me so many years to discover snowboarding :) So yeah, I'm now practising once a week on our local snowflex slope.. It's really tiny comparing to the hills that are discussed in majority of threads over here.. It takes about 30secs to come down (if I don't fall over), so you can imagine it yourself :)) But it's fun, and I've learnt some basic stuff like linked turns etc.. :) So hopefully next season I'll be able to go on a holday to experience the beauty of real mountains :) And chairlift - button lift are hard! I think I'm actually more tired at the top of the slope and I can really feel every muscle in my arms the next day! :) So welcome the newbie, I hope friendly people over here would share their wisdom with me! Cheers!
