OK, these are kind of goofy but if you are going to catch first chair on a powder day, or ski on a storm day , they come in handy! They are worn around the waist and hang down the back, so when you sit down on that snowy chair, your backside is protected.This concept is not new, and I don't take credit for it. Supposedly the explorer Amunsen found arctic natives wearing long skin flaps down their backsides. Popular at areas such as Whitefish and Snowbowl,( where they are known as Beavertails). Ski patrollers love them too,after all they are getting the real first chair. They help keep your backside dry and warm.( The rest of you, you're on your own.) Keep it in the car for those wet days.These are named after the mud flaps that are hanging off the backs of Montana pickup trucks (Big Sky Mud Flaps). Or maybe you remember the old Bitterroot valley swing band with that same name.
Made of 500d cordura and closed cell foam. Black is standard.
A ski bums best friend!
Please be careful anytime you're riding a chair lift!
Size - @ 20" wide by 29" long - You want it to be around your waist and hang down past your knees ( to keep the back of your knees dry) and you can cinch it up high or let it hang low. Normally you would wear these under your jacket, not over like the photo. Belt is good for up to 57" waist.
Please, keep away from high heat! Like a wood stove. The foam may(will) shrink, not to mention the nylon fabric. Thank you.
