Vail Quicker to Ticket Pass Fraud

Vail Quicker to Ticket Pass Fraud

Law enforcement in Vail is handing out more misdemeanors to ski-pass swappers -- nearly five times as many as its sister resorts in Summit County

If you're a ski-pass swapper, you'd better choose your next target carefully. Turns out Vail is more likely to turn pass fraudsters over to police than a number of its Colorado sister resorts. According to the Vail Daily, Vail law enforcement has handed out nearly five times the number of misdemeanors as Summit County police for ticket fraud. That doesn't mean fraud happening more often at the bigger resort. Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone all reported a similar number of incidents last season -- 454, 418, and 337, respectively -- but Vail PD has more officers on hand when it comes to ticketing. "We just don't have the resources" for that level of enforcement, Summit County Sheriff John Minor told the Daily, with three deputies on average patrolling 600 square miles. No word on which resort hears the most ridiculous excuses for being caught with another person's pass.
