Discount Lift Tickets - Found a back door!

I just bought airline tickets on Priceline, and at the end of the purchase process (which takes forever!) they have a banner to click for discount lift tickets in Colorado. <BR>I don't remember all the areas they have, but the prices are pretty good (I bought Winter Park tickets). <BR>Anyway, I tried to get back to the site so my buddy could get some, but you can't do it unless you're buying Priceline tickets. So I looked on my confirmation, and found that it's run by a company called Attractix. <BR>So we decided to try http://www.attractix.com, and clicked the e-ticket button. Voila! There are all the tickets!

Yup. Their VeriSign certificate expired in May -- that's usually a pretty sure sign. (no pun intended!) They're apparently the latest in a string of online lift-ticket ventures.

Another funny thing ... notice how much Nosedive's posting looks like <A HREF="http://www.girlgroove.com/wwwboard/messages/920.shtml" TARGET="_blank">this posting on another BBS</A>. Looks like they were flooding bulletin boards in a desperate last-ditch effort to save the operation.
