its pretty awesome when you show up to a mountain, go to guest services and have tickets printed out for you, and your "filmer." I still buy a season pass, and use vouchers (poach), but when you get the hook up, there is nothing better.
most pros would consider a day ticket a travel expense, whether sponsor covers it or not, they buy passes from time to time. every event issues passes, and photoshoots are scheduled, so it would be rare to need a pass anyway.
