I got my ticket clipped once last year for just cruising a groomer switch. Patroller was a straight up dick even when I politely tried to explain to him that I was in complete control blah, blah. Went down to the lodge and talked to the head patroller and told him what was up, said I ski here all the time and I'm a good skier, whatever. He said if I went up with him and proved that I could ski in control regular and switch I'd get my ticket back. I got my ticket back and ended up getting 4 free lift tickets for my "inconvenience" from the front desk hahaha.
