RFID Lift Tickets
The Highlands now uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) gates and hand scanners at all lifts across the resort. This touch-free system means paper tickets are a thing of the past - you'll simply have one Go Card that you can reload with lift tickets throughout the season. In addition, all season passes (including Ikon) will also be RFID-enabled for the 2021/22 winter season.
How RFID Works
Step 1: Purchase Your Ticket
To get a day ticket, purchase your lift ticket online to choose your date. Remember, prices go up as dates get closer, so get your tickets early for the best deal. After you check out, you'll receive a confirmation email with your QR code. If you purchased multiple tickets, there will be one QR code per ticket. Season Pass and Ikon Pass holders can skip this step - your pass is RFID ready.
Step 2: Pick Up Your Go Card
When you get to the resort, head to an Online Ticket Kiosk to get your Go Card (see pick up locations in the FAQs below). If you already have a season pass or Ikon Pass, you can skip this step. When it's time to ski or ride, place your Go Card in a jacket pocket, away from credit cards, cell phone, or other RFID-enabled tickets - chest or sleeve pockets are perfect. If you have a small child, you might need to give them a little boost to get their card scanned.
Step 3: Reload Your Go Card
Once you've gotten your Go Card, you can use it season after season - simply purchase your lift ticket online, and your Go Card will be automatically valid on the dates you purchased. If your card is lost or damaged, it's $5 for a replacement.
