Default Sneaking into a ski resort?

Yeah just wondering. I've never done this before, by the way, so I'm just wondering what the consequences exactly are.

Ski resort security will kill you. Literally. They. Will. Kill. You. (And I will help them get rid of the body.)

The resort I go to checks tickets all the time. That's why I bought a bright unique jacket so I get asked once.

I have seen people who say they "lost" their ticket and they get escorted to ticket boothe. Not sure what happened afterwards.

I'm not gonna judge, as I can't say I've never done it. However, 20 years ago they didn't have the technology they do today. Back then, it was completely visual. These days, they have scanners and are much more adament about checking. I was recently scanned twice while waiting in the same line!

Basically, you'll get caught very quick.

I go very often and the season passes are always expensive because i never buy them early. I don't do this because sometimes the winters aren't good in our area, so I always need to kind of experience the winter before I buy a season pass, which by the is way too expensive. I usually go about fifteen to twenty times per year and just cant afford it.
If you still don't believe us watch this video.
Watch: Ski Resort Security Guard Threatens To Kill Skier

This guy just left his pass at home and ski patrol flipped. Also if you get caught they WILL press chargers. It's stealing. Just like going to the movie theater and hoping from one show to another. Don't be a dumb ass and get a pass.

In addition to the above, if you get in front of me in the lift line and get caught without a ticket, forcing the lifties to call security and make the rest of us wait, I will beat you senseless with your own board before security comes to kill you.

Happy riding.
