I haven't had a run-in with ski patrol in years, mainly because I don't ski at Vail resorts. I'm also on the east coast so ducking ropes isn't a privilege I get often because they're usually just grass and shit. Anyhow, I feel like if I got caught by ski patrol I could just ski into the woods for a while until they decide to not follow me anymore. I'm probably better than them anyways so what stopping me? Just switch hoodies at the bottom then go back to the lift. Maybe it's a shitty or stupid thing to do but I wouldn't risk my season pass by stopping for them.
