Nearly three dozen people have been prosecuted so far this season for using someone else's ski pass at Vail Mountain (compared to three this time last season). It's becoming harder to deceive employees with the bigger photos on this year's passes and improved training. Vail Resorts spokeswoman Jen Brown said employees are paid extra to catch imposters, but she wouldn't say how much. Those who do get caught and charged with "deceptive use of a ski facility" face a hefty fine - up to $999.
