So I pulled a Khai Krepela at R2R this weekend. No pass that day, entered a contest (ok it was an easter egg hunt for a free pass), I won. I redeemed the good ol' golden egg and got my free seasons pass for next year in return.
Fast forward a couple days and the mountain is calling me. I haven't answered the phone but I have very good reason to believe (based on the tone of the message left on my phone and some text messages I received) that they want me to come in to the office.
My guess is that either A) I have to pay for a day pass that day but i keep the pass, B) I give the pass back and pay for the day pass that day, C) I get yelled at, pay for a day pass, and try not to get my pass taken away from me, or D) Try to pass it off as I wasn't skiing that day and was hiking on hill to find it. After all I was wearing jeans and regular shoes when I went in to redeem it. I have failed Khai and the rest of the pro poachers. I'm a disappointment to the industry.
So NS, what should I do? Anyone been in a similar situation? If so, what happened? Can they make me pay for a pass if they have no evidence that I actually went skiing that day? Could I pass off the fact that I "just hiked around for it"?
