Local resorts say ‘Don’t share your pass’

KIM MARQUISsummit daily news

SUMMIT COUNTY – Sharing is not looked upon brightly by local ski resorts when it comes to season passes. Vail Resorts on Thursday issued a reminder that it is illegal to share a pass among friends. Doing so will result in legal consequences, the company said.Fraudulent pass use is a seasonlong problem that increases every year, Breckenridge Ski Resort spokeswoman Emily Jacob said. Fraudulent users are arrested and either cited and released or booked and jailed. “We do see increased fraudulent pass use in March, but for Breckenridge it’s an issue all year,” Jacob said. “We want to try and stop this because it is theft … pass fraud undermines efforts to keep our prices down.”Copper Mountain Resort takes a similar approach, spokeswoman Katelin Hill said.”Copper considers it a theft of service if people share or use fraudulent passes,” Hill said, adding that a passholder’s vital information is available to ticket checkers on their pass scanners, so employees can ask personal questions like date of birth to identify them.Vail Resorts recommended that season passholders maintain possession of ski passes at all times.
