Radio Frequency Identification
Lift Access Made Easy
Sugarloaf now uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) gates at key 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 day tickets throughout the season, or use your RFID-enabled 2020/21 Season Pass or Ikon Pass.
How it Works
Step 1: Purchase Your Ticket
To get a day ticket, go to shop.sugarloaf.com/lift-tickets 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 mountain, head to an Online Ticket Kiosk in the base area to get your Go Card. 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. It'll be adorable.
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. There is a one-time $5 charge for the card itself, and if your card is lost or damaged, it's $5 for a replacement.
