You should definitely be able to take the chairlift. It might help to get a stomp pad to keep your back foot from slipping off the board when getting on and off. Strap in your front boot and leave your back foot out of the binding to push around. When you're in line, watch the other people get on and see when they go and what they do. To get on, start to push towards the spot where the lift picks you up. There should be a "stop here" indicator on the ground. Stop right before that. Look back and watch the chairlift come towards you. Sit onto the chairlift carefully and keep your snowboard straight, or else you will catch an edge and fall forward. Put the safety bar down and let your board hang by the front foot. Put the safety bar up when you're about 30 feet from the end. Again, keep your board straight getting off and ride down the little slope at the end. Stop when you're on flat ground at the top. Don't get discouraged if you fall trying to get on the lift, it happens all the time. The lift operator will stop the lift and let you get back on. Hope this helps!
