Using your Pass

Your season pass comes with an internal RFID antenna to identify you and provide lift access. It will look and work a bit different from your earlier passes. Here’s what you need to know:  

Check Your Pass

New for this season, check your pass ahead of time, and make sure your pass is active before you head to the lift.

  • No Reservations Needed

    We do not require reservations or restrict season pass use. Head straight to the lift to ski any day your pass is valid, and have fun.

  • Keep Your Pass In Your Pocket

    When you ski, place your RFID card in a pocket by itself. Phones, credit cards, other RFID cards, even smart watches can interfere with it. Do not punch a hole in your pass or you will damage the chip.

  • Save Your Pass to Reload

    RFID cards can be used season after season. Keep your card and you’ll be able to reload it with a new season pass or ticket pack next season.

  • Replacing a Lost Pass

    If you can't find your pass, you can get a replacement pass for $5 online, at any ticket window or the season pass desk. This will automatically deactivate your old pass, so don't bother hanging onto it if it turns up.

Using Your Friend Tickets

New this season, passholder Friend Tickets can be redeemed online. Grab your voucher code from your account in the online store, and give them to your friends and family to use for online ticket purchases!
