Why won't this switch statement work

So I've just started making a text based snakes and ladders game in C++ but this switch statement just keeps on returning the default case.

#include <iostream>


using namespace std;


int main(){


    int player1pos = 0;
    int player2pos = 0;

    int playerturn = 1;

    int dice = 1;

//   int input;
//   cin >> input;

   const int lad1 = 9;     const int lad1length = 37;
   const int lad2 = 23;    const int lad2length = 11;
   const int lad3 = 44;    const int lad3length = 18;
   const int lad4 = 67;    const int lad4length = 23;
   const int lad5 = 85;    const int lad5length = 9;

    switch (player1pos) {
  case lad1:
        player1pos += lad1length;

        cout << player1pos << endl;
        break;

    default:
        cout << "not working" << endl;
   }

    return 0;
}
What were you expecting?

Line 10: You initialize player1pos to zero and do not change it.

Line 27 expects player1pos to be 9.
Any other value (including zero) will execute the default case.

Holy crap I feel so stupid I was stuck with this for like an hour and a half

Thanks anyway :)
