RFID Direct-to-Lift Gates

West Mountain Uses RFID Technology!

Beginning in 22-23. West Mountain started using the RFID Chip-embedded West Express Card that triggers and opens the new access gates that are located at each lift. One of the best features of RFID.....your ticket time for skiing starts the first time you go through one of the access gates. A 2-hour time slot still applies for tubing.

What is RFID?

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification Device and consists of a small circuit integrated into your Season Pass or day ticket. When you pass through the lift line, this circuit will register and open an access gate automatically for hands-free and streamlined lift access.

RFID and West Mountain Season Pass and ticket Holders

Beginning in 22-23, Season Passes and tickets will look and feel very different. The RFID-enabled West Express Card will open the new access gates and allow for lift loading. With the card's durability, your Season Pass or ticket will be conveniently re-loadable HERE using the WTP number located on the card! As always, your Season Passes and tickets are for personal use only, non-transferable, and cannot be resold. 22-23 Season Passes can be picked up at the front desk inside the Main Lodge beginning Wednesday, December 7. You want to hold on to this card 😊

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE ACCESSING THE LIFTS?

You must have a ticket/pass loaded onto your RFID card HERE before accessing any lifts. Guests can only take one card through the lift access gates per day. Online Ticket

HOW SHOULD I USE MY RFID CARD WHEN SKIING/SNOWBOARDING/TUBING?

You should store your West Express RFID card in a secure, left-handed zipped pocket on its own; the card must be separate from cell phones, bank cards, keys, or any aluminum products like foil gum packaging. Do not have more than one RFID card on you at a time, including RFID cards from other resorts. Most modern ski/snowboard jackets have a built-in RFID pocket located on the lower left sleeve, which is ideal to keep your RFID card separate from other objects.

WHAT ABOUT LANYARDS, KEYRINGS, RETRACTABLE PASS HOLDERS, ETC.?

You will not need to remove your RFID card from your pocket for lift access unless there is a card read error. Punching a hole through your card will cause damage, rendering your card inactive. If you punch a hole in in your card, you will need to purchase a replacement RFID card.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REPLACE A LOST OR DAMAGED RFID CARD?

Damaged or lost cards are subject to a $6 replacement fee.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REACTIVATE A CARD IF THE CARD IS DEACTIVATED FOR BAD BEHAVIOR/CONDUCT:

Deactivated cards are subject to a $100 reactivation fee.
