Powder Leashes/Ribbon Cords
Do any of you guys use them, and if you do are they useful? Not the best skier in pow and the occasional times when I do lose a ski it's such a pain to find and usually eats up a good amount of time on a nice day. Any thoughts on them are appreciated.

My uncle swears by them, I think you end up looking like a tourist/gaper. Just don't fall :)

i used to use a ribbon attached to my binding and tucked up into my pant cuff. it helps and you dont notice its there, its just kinda a pain to have that to deal with all day
I use them and have no issues with them. It's one of those things you won't really notice until you need them and then you'll be super thankful. It took awhile to get used to taking them off before popping my skis off and you look like an idiot when you lose a ski on a groomer or something but that beats having to spend a couple hours searching for a ski in PNW cement.

The brakes broke on my skis and a couple times they went flying down the hill and almost hit someone so now I have to use leashes. It is pretty annoying and I am also paranoid that I will tomahawk and get repeatedly hit in the face but that hasn't happened yet.
