well my mum used to work in the office so i no these people. once i honestly lost my pass or couldnt find it, then i just went to the counter, said "hey all there, how is it going, hey, hows your family" and all that stuff since i know the guys in there.
so they got me a ticket for the day without asking. but things like that only work as long as youre not abusing them
at my hometown mountain, we had to show our passes at the ticket counter to get a lift ticket, you couldnt just show the pass. the cashier would have to affix the ticket to the coat/pants herself for security reasons according to mtn rules.
if we needed to get a ticket for someone, we would just go down to rentals, give one of the kids on shift our coat and have them get a ticket on there then bring the coat back.
otherwise, you can always just cut the ticket.
