Protect Your Resort with Aspenware’s Kount Integration

Ski areas are facing a rising tide of fraudulent transactions involving online lift ticket purchases, with many instances occurring through online marketplaces such as Kijiji, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace. In these scams, discounted lift tickets are advertised on social media platforms and purchased online with a stolen credit card. An unsuspecting guest purchases the discounted ticket on the social site, picks it up and heads to the resort to ski. Meanwhile, the stolen credit card is reported and the charges are reversed, resulting in a loss for the resort. Consequently, resorts can face large financial losses and uncomfortable interactions with guests.
