ROXY Snow Diaries: Episode 4 The Chairlift


The chairlift can strike fear into almost every beginner. And we’d be lying if we said Megs didn’t almost fall off the chairlift at one point while filming the series. But thankfully, we had Emily Arthur on board to not only break down how to get on and off the chairlift safely but to rescue Megs when she needed it.


With our fresh skating skills, approaching the chair is easy:

Skate into position

Turn and look for the chair

Grab onto the rails and sit down


And then as you approach the top:

Push off the chair at the marker

Skate down the slope with knees bent and shoulders in line


Don’t forget that you can always ask the chairlift attendants to slow the chair down or stop it completely while you’re learning.
