Woman Caught Using Man's Lift Pass Claims Sex Change

Woman Caught Using Man's Lift Pass Claims Sex Change

How far would you go to get free skiing? One woman went too far, claiming her boyfriend's pass was her own; when questioned, she claimed she was midway through a sex change.

Let's all admit something: Skiers are good people. Sure, there are some minor liftline grumblers and on-slope maniacs, but in general we all like bluebird days, big powder, and a fat beer after last chair. And in general we're happy to give ski companies our money to provide access to such enjoyable pursuits. But let's also admit something else: Skiers are not above a little, shall we say, wheeling and dealing when it comes to ski passes. You know what we're talking about. The kid selling you his half-used lift ticket in the parking lot. Sharing a season pass with your buddy Brett because you look alike -- at least with a ski helmet on. The unspoken agreement, however, is that there's a limit to how far one can or should go in such pursuits. We think we've found it. A woman was caught using a man's ski pass at Keystone, Colo., last week; when lifties busted her, she claimed to be midway through a sex change. Donna Johnson, decidedly a female, tried to pass herself off as a male pass holder named Buck Jocko. When a sheriff's deputy got involved and called the pass holder's father to confirm the story, Jocko Sr. was a little shocked to hear his son was now a daughter. A subsequent call to the real Jocko (the one with, er, maleness) revealed he had lent his pass to his girlfriend, Johnson. Don't know about you, but we would've just ducked sideways out of the liftline and headed home.
