Sharing Lift Pass Question at Steamboat

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I have done a few searches, I cant seem to find info about sharing a lift pass. 

 

My son is only 3 years old and will not be skiing this spring.  In the past my wife and I have shared a lift pass, so one can stay with the little one and one skiis with my 10 yo daughter.  Either we do shifts and ski half days or take turns daily.  

 

If I get the 5 day pass with kid ski free, can my wife and I pass it back and forth.  I am guessing this is technically not transferable but in reality can we do it?


My apologies if this is not the forum/site to be asking in.

TIA

FYI: We will buy EPIC passes if we are going out that way over New Year and spring break.

Obviously the ski area wants each person to have their own ticket, but I see it done all the time by our members with young families.  Assuming the 5-day pass is actually exchanged for daily lift tickets. you just need to find an attachment method that lets you discretely swap.  Someone familiar with Steamboat probably knows the type of ticket system they use.

 

It's tough to continue the ski habit with a young family. It should be easier.

 

@Finndog knows Steamboat, but has vowed never to reproduce. @tromano or @DSloan  What do you think?

Thank you.  My thoughts exactly.  Steamboat is very cool in making it easier with the kids ski free option.  

 

If anyone else knows for sure I'd appreciate it.

My guess is Steamboat's multi-day passes have pictures.  I'm pretty sure they did for friends at Winter Park last year, and they are on the same system.

 

Maybe @twochordcool or @Finndog can tell you for sure.

@tball  A lot of multi day passes do have pics but I have seen many that are not.  I don't know the criteria.  not sure if special collections like these do.  As these are not intrawest collections, not sure how they look.  

 

@Cirquerider  not sure what you mean? are you using someone else's passes and swapping around? When I ski with nieces and nephews we buy a multi-day pass (which were not pictured)  which can be used over multiple days like a 3 day pass used over 5 days.

I didn't have a picture on mine, just a standard one, 6 of 8 day pass, beginning date etc.

So I should be able to ski in the morning and pass the lift ticket to my wife for the afternoon.

I don't recall them looking that close - it may have your name on it (or your wifes), but the only thing they seemed concerned about was that it passed the random scan check.

Thanks for the info.  

Just wondering, do they use the credit card looking pass or the old school metal ring with sticky backed paper passes?

Use a name like "Chris" or something that would work for both, because I think the name comes up even if there is no photo.
