I'd describe myself as a rather experienced snowboarder respectively T-bar rider. I used to fall out the T-bar when I was a beginner. So now, riding the T-bar to the top isn't a problem at all. I'm having a problem with the pain I get in my inner thigh. If it's one T-bar a day it's not bad at all. But if 90% of lifts are T-bars and I'm riding a whole week in the same resort, the pain in the evenings is tremendous.
I used to ride ski before riding snowboard, and as a skier the T-bars aren't a problem. They just pull at your butt and it won't hurt - even after a week.
I thought about placing a small cushion at my inner thigh but I'm worried, that it will restrict me while riding down the hills. Pulling with my arms only temporarily decreases the pressure on my thigh. I hope there's a hacky solution to prevent the pain in my inner thigh which hopefully won't restrict my leg in movement while riding my snowboard.
Possible solution could be using some kind of climbing harness as suggested by MaxD, but I haven't tried that.
