Default Splitting a season pass?

I want to buy a season pass to a place thats nearby but none of my friends
want to spend the money. Two of them said if they could split the pass (basically have one of them buy it, privately split the price and go at different times) they would do it. Does anyone know if this is common or any potential problems we might run into?

Not sure about your resort, but generally that is against the rules and in some cases, like with vail resorts it's illegal. I also don't really understand why they wouldn't just get their own passes so they could go together.

Might want to read the pass contract that constitutes fraud.

It is illegal anywhere in the states and probably North America. There are also incentives for lifties to bust people using someone else's pass. Generally around $50-$100 a pop. Make a big enough stink about it, and they'll call the sheriff to sort it out. Which usually ends in someone getting a ticket or an arrest.

Perhaps identical twins could pull it off if they have the same gear. Lifties quickly get to know folks and their gear at our hill and locals can spot each other from a long distance just from how they ride and what they are wearing. Last year, one morning 3rd chair, hauling ass down a fresh groomer, nobody in sight, and a good ways from any chair and get tagged by a patroller to slow down (like a 1-2 second interaction of patroller pointing and me nodding and shutting it down abit)...lame...but later 5-6 folks said they saw me get tagged.

I know when I got my season pass the contract stated that if someone was found using my pass, if I gave it to them willingly of course, then it would result in loss of the season pass and a 100$ fine.

Don't do it. Not worth it. Plus as previously stated most passes have photos on hem.

Me and my crew have been pulling this off for years. Also our local mountain only has all day or evening passes, so when I'm leaving at dusk I give my all day to a stranger. Fuck the squares.
