Squaw's Electric Ticket Scanners

By

New this season at Squaw Valley are electric ticket scanners on all lower mountain lifts. They are a real pain in the ass and I don’t think anyone is happy with them, including Squaw. Earlier this season they were having real problems with people poaching because anyone’s pass would get you up. In an attempted to solve this problem they have installed big TV’s that display your photos and pass information to all who are standing around.

Here is my problem with them. It use to be that you could ski right up to KT and on most days get on a chair without braking a stride. Now you need to come to a complete stop and skate the last 10 yards to the chair. I know it does not seem like a big deal but when you are making laps all day and on each one you need to come to a complete stop then skate 10 yards for a system that does not work in the first place it kind of gets aggravating.

What do you guys think of the new Electric Ticket Scanners? You can leave your comments HERE.
