New for 2008-2009 Season, Alyeska Resort Goes to RFID for Lift Ticket and Season Pass Access
What does RFID mean for me?

Using an RFID lift and/or season passes allows guests to set up an automatic charge with a credit card, allowing them to directly access the lifts without waiting at the ticket windows. Alyeska Resort will debut a complete installation of radio frequency identification (RFID) gate technology and the Resort Technology Partners (RTP) software and web services system for the 2008-09 winter season. Purchase your RFID Lift Pass one time for $5 and use it for the rest of the season. One great advantage for Alyeska skiers and riders is that the hands-free system means no more showing a pass at every lift. Skiers place their lift ticket or season pass inside a pocket by itself and leave it there for the day; the antennas will do the rest. The reusable lift pass allows visitors to bypass the ticket window and head straight to the lifts by purchasing visits online. After your day on the slopes, visit alyeskaresort.com and enter the web ID on the pass to track ski history and reload the card. On your next ski day, go straight to the lifts and skip the extra stop at the ticket office. To ensure efficiency of RFID system, skiers and riders can make sure the antennas read the chip in their pass by placing it in a pocket by itself. Do not put it in a pocket near cell phones, music players, metal ware or other passes. The ideal location is above the knees & below the shoulders.
The RFID system will provide a completely hands-free experience for all guests, scanning lift tickets and season passes automatically at turnstiles positioned at the entrance to each lift including the tram, chair 4, chair 3 and eventually chair 6. The scanners receive signals from the tickets that are tucked into jacket or pants pockets. The embedded RFID chip will register with an access gate that will automatically swing open to admit an authorized skier or snowboarder. The less time guests wait in line for lifts, tickets and rentals, the more time they have for fun.
Renewable Media – After this season, hang on to your new card (media). Passes and Cards will be able to be renewed online – never wait to pick up your card again. For more information regarding RFID, check out our RFID LIFT ACCESS page.
