This is a "snowboard leash."

A snowboard leash is used as a safety precaution to prevent occurrences of runaway snowboards that may injure others and/or destroy the snowboard(1).

North Carolina, USA has required the use of such devices in their state according to House Bill 334/ SL 2009-353.

House Bill 334/ SL 2009-353 § 99C-2 (b) 5 states:

A skier shall have the following responsibilities: To wear retention straps, ski brakes, or other devices to prevent runaway skis or snowboards
