    Where are the wickets?

    Does anybody still ski at a resort that uses wickets? I have needs.

    Yep, but since I'm usually skiing on a season pass, I keep a wicket wrapped around one of my poles - right above the basket.

    Ahhh, so that's why it always goes on the front main zipper. gotcha. I also nominate cut down/broken bike spoke, but much effort.

    I think every resort in WA except Stevens is using wickets this season.

    And yes, the make excellent stabby-pokey devices

    Does anyone know why the resorts switched back? Too much ticket swapping?

    Cricketing reference?

    In Tahoe pretty sure Sugarbowl has wickets. I guess OP is looking for UT places?

    You can usually get a volume discount by looking on shitty jackets in the back of the thrift stores.

    the cleaning device- yas why have I never thought of this.
    dropped the paper clip I was currently using yesterday on the rug and it was immediately enshrouded in dog hair
    then couldnt find another one of the thicker/ non-coated paperclips I like to use

    Maybe a dumb question, but what is the alternative to wickets? Other than rfid passes, that is.

    Does anyone remember the pre-wicket days of having lift tickets stapled to your clothes? I do.
