Angry Keystone, leave me alone!

Okay I understand your trying to make $50 by catching people using other peoples passes, but for the 4th time in the day quit fucking asking what my zip code and phone number and birthdate. Gets a little fucking annoying, I feel like I'm being harassed. I think you'll be okay not havin a bag of weed one night. ffs.

I have no clue why anyone still goes there. They get worse and worse every season. A couple seasons from now, they'll need to take blood samples in order for you to get on the lift. And you'll have to have a GPS implanted in the back of your neck that automatically pulls your pass if you dare to go faster than 10mph on a green run.

had a lifty early in the season want me to remove my headgear and everything to look at my face ... I was like um no youre the new guy Ive been here 13 years lol .. then called the other two lifties by name with a wave and hopped on the lift lol..

it is annoying when it gets to the end of the month and you know they are only asking you crap because they need rent money.. most of the time at brighton ill just get the wave by since im there so much unless the boss mans around then i always get my pass out to make the lifties look good

the lifties are just doing their jobs - give them a break.

i think it is reasonable to expect a resort to take a reasonable measure to try to prevent pass fraud. to me, it's perfectly reasonable to ask people a question like their birthdate or zip code to ascertain that they are the passholder in question.

op, i think you are being unreasonable.

when you have to make something up and criticise somebody for something they haven't even done, you devalue your contribution completely,

Hes obviously making a sarcastic joke. By the 4th time it was quite annoying, and makes me not wanna go there anymore. No one else was getting asked, why me? I'm not being unreasonable, I'm being pissed.

Welcome to the shittiest resort in Summit County. I don't even acknowledge the minimum wage snow carnies as people. In fact I go so far as to when they ask me to say no speek engrish and see what they do. Or if I'm really fiesty I just do sign language that usually makes them leave me alone. Hell my pass photo is from 6 years ago and about 70lbs heavier.

this is a clinical medium which does not transmit tone very well. given that i have no idea who you are, it's not clear how i am supposed to know you were being sarcastic.

whatever, i'm glad we agree

nobody else? unless you stood by the lift line all day, you can not possibly say that with any authority. while waiting in line, you could maybe see the lifties checking passes on 10 or 12 people ahead of you - and maybe the same number if you made a point of looking back after you were asked. that's around 20 out of hundreds if not thousands on any given day. perhaps nobody else seemed to be being asked. there comes a point - and it comes quite quickly usually, where if all you have is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail...

did you do anything about it? if so, what happend? if not, why not?

Sarcasm can be read if you have a comprehension of someone using over the top anecdotes.

He was at Keystone what he said is pretty much the norm especially at the end of the month. My guess was it happened on the Montezuma chair and Peru. Any resort that puts up an ad every wednesday in the local paper saying how many season passes have been pulled, how many lift tickets have been pulled, and how many have been pulled for fraud isn't a place you want to go. When I do venture over that way I go up the Peru chair right to the park and I don't leave till that 20 minute break when the nazi patrol is not on the mountain and even then I have to pick and choose my line very carefully after the shit that happened there last season.

It's just not a fun place to go anymore unless you're a fat out of shape midwesterner with your 5 bratty kids and going to do cheese wedge or skidded turns all day. That place is run with an old mindset and it won't change till either Vail Resorts gets their head out of their ass and removes the shit from their eyes or people get fired. Just be happy you didn't have a run in with Craig Simson the head of patrol that guy will openly admit how much he dislikes snowboarders and how much they have no place on "his" mountain.
