Ticket & Pass fraud policy

Grand Targhee resort offers a variety of lift-access products which grant the holder access to resort lifts and lift-serviced terrain. All lift-access products offered by Grand Targhee Resort are non-transferrable in nature and are valid for the named ticket/passholder only. 

Valid Use

All users accessing lifts and lift-serviced terrain at Grand Targhee must possess a valid lift-access product on their person and make it available for validation at all times while using the lifts and lift-serviced terrain. A lift-access product is valid when the following criteria are met:

  1. The ticket/pass is in the possession of the named ticket/passholder as named on the pass media.
  2. The lift-access product is valid on the date of attempted use and has uses available.
  3. The product is valid for the location of attempted access (ex: lift-specific products).
  4. The ticket/passholder meets the criteria for the product (ex: age-specific products).
Invalid Use

Any person attempting to access lifts and lift-serviced terrain without a lift-access product meeting the valid criteria is committing and invalid use. Grand Targhee resort personnel will make their best efforts to determine if the invalid use is intentional or unintentional and respond accordingly.

Intentional Invalid Use Includes:

  • Attempting to use the lifts or lift-serviced terrain without having purchased a lift-access product. 
  • Presenting a ticket/pass that does not belong to the user (fraudulent use).
    • This includes pass holders of Grand Targhee and Mountain Collective. if you have both, you may not give your other pass to a friend for family member to use. Passes must be used by the person whose name and photo is on the pass media.
  • Knowingly presenting an invalid ticket/pass in an attempt to gain lift access. 
  • Other invalid uses determined to be intentional by Grand Targhee personnel. 

Guests who are believed to be committing unintentional invalid use will be given the opportunity to correct the invalid use by producing a valid lift-access product with no consequence. 

Intentional invalid use will be considered theft of services and the involved parties will be asked to pay for services received and/or to leave the premises. Grand Targhee Resort may involve law enforcement at management's discretion.

Fraudulent Use

If a ticket or pass is suspected of being presented by someone other than the named ticket or passholder, it will be considered "Fraudulent Use." Once fraudulent use is suspected, Grand Targhee personnel will "hotlist" the ticket or pass and make a reasonable attempt to recover the media.

It is the responsibility of the named ticket or passholder to secure their ticket or pass in a manner that would prevent fraudulent use by others.

Tickets or passes involved in fraudulent use will be subject to a reactivation fee of $250 + the cost of services fraudulently received. 

  • For example if a pass was used fraudulently for 1 day, the reactivation fee is $250 + the cost of a full-price day ticket the day of the fraudulent use.

If Grand Targhee is unable to recover the reactivation fee from the person committing fraudulent use, it will become the responsibility of the named ticket or passholder. The named ticket or passholder will not be permitted to purchase any additional lift-access products until the fee is paid. 

If a ticket or passholder alleges that their ticket or pass was used fraudulently without their knowledge or consent, they may contact law enforcement to file a stolen property report and submit a copy to Grand Targhee. Resort management will determine if the ticker or pass may be reinstated upon receipt of the stolen property report an Dif the passholder will be subject to the reactivation fee.

If a passholder is involved with fraudulent use more than once, they will not be eligible for reactivation and will not be permitted to purchase lift-access products indefinitely, at the discretion of the resort management. 

Reactivation fees may only be waived due to extenuating circumstances at the sole discretion of resort management.
