  • On your first visit to the mountain, you can pick up your RFID card at any of the ticket windows. Once you are issued the card, it will have your active lift ticket on it. Any future online purchases will be automatically loaded straight on to your card. If you misplace your RFID card at any point in the season, there is a $5 re-print fee int he Downhill area and $2.50 in the Nordic Area.
