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

    I cut pieces of welding rod (used for oxy-acetylene welding), they're a little larger than a wicket and stiffer

    I feel like I got the last metal wicket of my life.

    Sugarloaf.
    Good on ya.

    Are any resorts still using the metal wicket?

    Magic, Mohawk and, last I knew, Mount Peter are still in the wicket game. Plattekill was until 2-3 years back but no more. My kid still likes leaving as many as possible on his jacket.

    Fernie and Kickinghorse do up here in canuckistan.

    I think all RCR resorts use them but i haven't been to the other 2 in a while.

    Just talking to a friend about the fine art of asking for a lift ticket as people head home in the parking lot. I could look into the soul of a person in about 10 seconds as a high school kid by the response they gave.
