I have just about all of my concert ticket stubs, backstage passes and photo credentials.

I'd need a bunch of your boards if I had a ticket for every day I've been skiing. I've averaged 100 days a season for the last 35 years and 50 days for the 25 years before that.

I have all of my season passes, starting when I lived out west in '88, so I'm missing the first 5 or 6 from my days teaching at liberty.

I hold onto season passes. I don't think I have any lift tickets unless there's still some on attached to my pants somewhere.

Wonder what the wall paper looks like in Phil's house?

Just my season passes from teaching And one from Alta that says "Welcome Chan Family" and "Happy Birthday Clarence" Someone told the lift ops that day was my Father's birthday and that the whole family was there

I'm sorry, but that a sure sign of Gaperdom.

I don't agree. You have to have them attached to your clothing to be elegible for gaper status. This is just a sure sign of mental instability. Compulsive behavior.

Correction P,
OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE behavior

I have all of my Vail Associates season passes. Of course, it's still valid and I've only ever had one. I probably have my other Colorado ones, too, but I wouldn't know where they are. I do have my Copper passes because they have my employee ID on them...

Maybe I'm cynical, but I think that if you need to count or keep track of your days/resorts then something is not quite right. If it feels that you get enough days in or been to enough places, then that should suffice. To track it for bragging rights is a bit narcissistic & self serving. Now, I admit I do log all of my BC tours, but I do it because I need to keep track of my routes so as to avoid dicey avalanche areas that I can't keep all in my head.

Aw, Powdr, it's just fun, like calling yourself 'Powdr' instead of using your name.

I have a few passes and a box of lift passes. They're memories, each one.

I've also got a box of pins from all the resorts I've skied, but I'm missing a few. Hopefully, I can get them when I'm back in the Pacific Northwet this fall!

That's a beautiful thing, Ott! I had a pair of those Elan's about 8 years ago.

Bonni, there is a story behind those Elans. Ann skid on 190 cm skis all during the straight ski era. One night after skiing and a few drinks at the bar we cane out to find these rather short and wimpy Elans with Ann's poles hanging from the tips but her skis gone. They just eded up in the pile with the other of our discards...

Hey, it's OK to be a gaper. We can't all be as cool as Powdr. I've been saving my lift passes for years, I have a shoe box full. Unfortunately I skied for thirty plus years before I started collecting them. And I've been known to keep tickets hanging on my ski jacket for years. They make good zipper pulls and I enjoy irking snobs also (yes, you, Powdr). You can call me gaper and feel better about yourself, so everybody's happy!

I don't keep daily tickets (unless they're from areas abroad), but I do keep all of my seasons passes. One of these days i'm going to get them framed, currantly I've 19 from W-B. It's scary how much one ages, the length of one's hair and the fashion statement!

Junior High!
post #21 of 25
nice, i hold onto my season passes and my ticket from jackson. since it was my first time out west and to jackson
post #22 of 25
i don't have tickets from each day, i do have them from each place i've skied. just because. and every now and then, or maybe one day well into my old age, i look at them and remember a day i was lucky enough to be able to ski, to be lucky enough to be in the mountains with my health, to recall good times with friends. et cetera. if that's cheesey, then i'm cheesey. some people keep mementos. it doesn't have to do with "bragging rights" or "keeping track."
it's just a thing. people who call out "junior high" or whatever...are you that bored? that bothered?

no worries, it ain't contagious.

"cool patrol" blows. gittoveryoursellvz.

Go Bushwacker Go.
You got to understand where he's coming from. If I'm not mistaken he's gone from never-ever to full fledged ski bum/instructor in like 4 years. He's flush with ski fever.

Back in the early '70s I saved trail maps for a while from every place I went. My brothers threw in some they had collected. We tacked them on a stairway wall. We had lots of examples from just about every part of the country. Those old maps eventually got dumped. I figured why save them after the ski areas expanded and they were out of date? Now I wish I had them as personalized nostalgia/collectable items.
