    Hi guys,

    Over the past few years I've heard various terms being thrown around regarding various types of ski tow tickets/passes, but I've never taken much notice because I've usually had a season pass. So, can you guys please clarify this for me: What's the difference between a "late starter" and "half day", and when do these times take effect? Also, if there is a difference between the two, what's the "late starter" rate for a tertiary student?

    I'll be bringing a couple of carloads of friends up this weekend, so looking forward to having a good one!

    I know half day for a student is $25.
    A full day for student is $45
    Never heard of the "late starter" although spoke to a couple of guys who turned up at 3:30 the other day, i.e with half an hour left of the tows running, and were allowed on for free!

    Late starter passes were scrapped last year (or was it the year before?). They kicked in at 11:15. I do miss them.

    Late starter tickets were scraped over the summer primarily for the reason that customers were getting stroppy with ticket staff when they wouldnt sell them before the advertised time of 11.15 (very nasty and abusive) Half days are either up till 12.30 or from 12.30http: Go to//www.ben-lomond.com/blc.html to see current ticket prices
