Please note: Your Pass is for your personal use only and you CANNOT share it with your friends or family, no matter how close you are. Scanning gates and attentive gate operators check to ensure that it is you sliding through the gates at each lift. If another guest is caught with your pass, we will revoke your Pass which means you will need to purchase a new pass should you wish to ski or ride again.
