They are little pink cards. Guess ill find out if they are legit tmr morning at vail.
Vail Resorts are extremely strict on their resale policies. As said before it's mainly the employees reselling their employee discount pass vouchers that they are looking for (I believe the voucher gets you a ticket for $45).
Not sure on those comps, I don't think they'd be too happy an employee is doing this though so I would avoid giving his name.

Argo Full time year round employees get lift ticket vouchers and free passes for friends and family. This may be what that is. I have used them before and they are legit.

Actually I would be careful with that, most resorts have a policy that forbids the reselling of tickets.
There is a good chance they could actually deactivate the ticket if they know someone is trying to sell it, this would be done via the ticket serial number.
I know some resorts will specifically look for people reselling on ebay and if they put an actual photo of the ticket and serial number they will null the ticket.

Yep, toward the end of the season you can always find good deals on unused 4 pack tickets.

My question is: what are the chances these tickets might not be legit and me getting scammed. Anyways to identify from the tickets itself when we meet for the exchange?

I guess i am just looking for more information on how these tickets usually come by so i can educate myself before making any deals.

Tarzanman There is no way for you to know for sure?

It would be an utterly simple task for someone to obtain a military lift ticket (the ones that they sell on base) and copy it onto some card stock or maybe do a semi-professional job of duplicating it.

I've seen some pretty darn good counterfeit college football game tickets, so it wouldn't be a huge stretch for someone to counterfeit a lift pass which has a higher face value.

Caveat emptor.
