The slightly older validator always stares at my pass and then me then my pass then me like I stole it. Always. Like 5 times in one day. Not a huge issue but it's starting to get on my nerves.
Yea he does the same to me as my picture is a little wierd. He works during the winter also and is normally the same way, we once got in to a big argument in the lift line over how $95/day was ridiculious for a day pass and encourages people trying to sneak up and he got all defensive like he owned the place.
I heard rumours that he made a fair amount of money booking people using other people's passes. So that's probably why he scruitinzes yours and my pass.
