Using a fraudulent lift ticket carries a maximum fine of up to $999 and 180 days in jail. So far this winter, there have been 39 such cases reported to police, as opposed to 4 cases during the same period last year. Vail police say suspects are either issued a summons or are arrested depending on the circumstances. Police say tickets are being unlawfully sold online. Vail Police tell a story of a buyer who bought $2,000 worth of ticket with a credit card, and then sold them on Craigslist. The tickets eventually came up as invalid after the buyer reported his credit card as stolen. Vail Police say the only authorized dealer of lift ticket is Vail Resorts. The Law Offices of Steven J.
