FASTER TO THE FUN with RFID

Getting on the slopes at Sierra-at-Tahoe has never been easier, thanks to the implementation of hands-free gate access systems (known as RFID) to all entry lifts. These gates will scan your reloadable RFID card from inside your pocket; we will no longer be manually scanning tickets or season passes. Guests may now expect streamlined access to the lifts and an easy pass-reload system, allowing for more time shredding and less time in line.

Sure, this sounds great and all, but you may still be wondering to yourself, “What is RFID, and what does it do for me?” Great questions - read on below to learn everything you need to know!

What is RFID:

RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, and is a small chip and antenna integrated into your Reloadable Lift Ticket or Season Pass. When you pass through the lift line and go through the new RFID gates, this chip will register your card, whether it is a Season Pass or Day Ticket, and open the access gate automatically. All you have to do is *reload your card here!

*Reload ability available starting this December after first purchase is made and you received your card.

Why RFID:

Sierra has switched to RFID to provide the most streamlined guest experience available. Guests will no longer have to physically show their Season Pass or Lift Ticket to the lift attendant between every lap—the RFID card will register through your pocket or sleeve to the gate, which will open automatically as you approach! Guests will also be able to use the same card, day after day, season after season, without having to go to the Season Pass Office between uses: simply *click here to reload your card.
