Hi, question about how purchased lift tickets work. Found somebody willing to sell me a one day ticket to Breck. Do the ticks have a barcode that, after you get scanned at the lift, the computer registers it that day, and then the barcode becomes invalid for future use? Just want to make sure I'm not purchasing a used tick. Thanks

Vail Resorts (operator of Breck) no longer issues paper tickets. They issue an EpicMix card with a barcode. You can load multiple days on the card, but there is no way of knowing how many days are on there without scanning it. Although, you might be able to look it up by typing in the code on the EpicMix website, and verify how many days are on it. I have never done this.

The paper ticket may be one given to an employee. They usually get a couple free tickets and a bunch of $50 tickets to give to friends and family. A few years ago, when we last used one, the person getting the ticket had to go to the ticket counter, cash it in and get a day pass.
