I don't intend to win the lifetime pass. I bet I can beat 16 uses though!!
There may be a consolation prize if you don't make it. I emailed Doug Fish yesterday and suggested that the skier with the most visits should win a free pass for the following season. He responded right away. He said this idea is under active consideration. They were thinking about it for last season, but backed off because the software wasn't quite ready. My take is that this is a 50/50 chance for next season.
