Buying Lift Tickets on Craigslist!

Hey Buzzards,
I was going to use a Shell voucher this weekend for a trip to Monarch with some friends but found out this weekend was a black out date. So I hopped on CL looking for lift tickets and found 6 for 150$ with no black out dates good until April 11.

Should I worry about being scammed?
Do people make face tickets to sell?

I am supposed to meet to buy them @ 5 so hopefully some of you chime in before then.

check his ID..address and any other way to harrass him if you get screwed.

We could put together a buzzards task force to hit scammers. Imagine the flury of power paws to the face!

Meet them at the mountain and pay for the first day only until you get at least 1 ticket verified as good to .

Well, I can't vouch for other random people, but I have sold my loveland 4 pack leftovers on Craigslist the last couple of years and I wasn't scamming anyone...

I've bought plentyy of tickets on CL, but I went to their house to get them and not some back alley.

People who don't ski often get comp'd tickets and sell them on CL.

They should have a slightly bitter, chemical taste.
