Pick-Up

Please pick up your lift ticket at one of the Lift Ticket Pick-Up Boxes located at the Whiteface Base Lodge lower tunnel and Premier Lot across from the boot-up tent also at the Bear Den Lodge entrance. You must scan your ticket voucher (either printed or on your mobile device) to redeem your lift ticket RFID card. For your convenience, your mobile device screen can be scanned for redemption, so printing is not required. We do recommend you take a screenshot of your ticket voucher (including barcodes) in case you encounter poor cell service at the mountain.

Your lift ticket must be used at Whiteface on the first day (the arrival date) selected at the time of purchase. The remaining day(s) of use must occur the next consecutive day(s) at Whiteface, Gore or Belleayre Mountain.

You can also purchase rentals at the ticket windows located inside the main entrance of the Main Base Lodge and Bear Den Lodge.

SKI3 RFID Card

RFID Technology

ORDA was pleased to introduce RFID Technology for the 2019/2020 Winter Season. This will eliminate the need for guests to present their lift ticket or Season Pass to a lift attendant prior to loading all base area lifts. RFID Cards can be reloaded via a home computer or smartphone and can be used season after season.

How does it work?

The cards use RFID technology to notify gates at each base lift to open when you approach. This eliminates the need for the lift operator to scan your ticket. Simply place your RFID Direct-to-Lift Card/Pass in a jacket or pants pocket and the gate will open as long as you have days loaded onto the card. If you don’t have any days remaining on your card, you can load more days at any time either online or at a ticket window.

How to use your SKI3 card

Your Season Pass, Frequent Skier Card, or Lift Ticket will be encrypted onto a SKI3 Card with an RFID chip inside.
Place your SKI3 Card in a jacket pocket by itself, between shoulder and waist height.
The access gates at the lifts will read your SKI3 Card and open automatically if valid for that day.
Skip the ticket window and go directly from your car to the lifts, without having to present your SKI3 Card to attendants.
Reload your SKI3 Card online and use it for several years! This reduces waste and adds convenience for you.

Policies

Refund Policy

Refunds are not available for any reason. Skiing and snowboarding are outdoor sports that are often affected by changing weather and snow conditions. When purchasing lift passes, please consider the weather, (both recent and forecasted), and the possibility of fatigue, personal injury, or sickness.

Snow Guarantee

We strive to present an exceptional experience and snow conditions at all times, but there may be days where uncontrollable factors come into play. We also know life is uncertain and sometimes things don’t go as planned. Our Snow Guarantee is designed to help give you some peace of mind. If for any reason you do not want to ski on the day for which you have a pre-purchased ticket, please see the Guest Services desk or contact us via our Customer Services form and we will apply the amount paid for your ticket to a Snow Guarantee Card. This card is valid towards any ticket, lesson, or rental purchase for one year.

Please see our product policies for additional information.

FAQs

Why are we using RFID technology, A.K.A. SKI3 Cards?

There are many benefits to RFID technology. First and foremost, it gives hands-free access to our lifts. Once you have your RFID-enabled SKI3 Card, you can reload additional days online eliminating any stopping at the ticket window. Your SKI3 Card will last multiple seasons, this way you can simply reload your ticket or pass and use it season after season. So don’t throw it away!

Is RFID new?

RFID is a proven technology that’s been around since the 1970s. Until recently, it’s been too expensive and too limited to be practical for many commercial applications. As it becomes more affordable to manufacture tags/cards, RFID will likely be used to overcome many of the problems associated with bar code scanning. Radio waves travel through most non-metallic materials, so they can be embedded in protective plastic, like our SKI3 Cards, for weather-proofing and greater durability.

What is a SKI3 card?

The RFID-enabled SKI3 Card replaced our traditional lift tickets, Season Passes, and Frequent Skier Cards and has a small RFID chip integrated into the card. When you pass through the lift line, the chip will register and open the lift access gate automatically. All guests loading the lift will need a SKI3 Card.

Where should I carry my RFID direct-to-lift card/pass?

Keep your SKI3 Card in a jacket or pants pocket, between knee and shoulder height. This will help the gate’s antenna pick up your signal clearly and allow for a smooth loading process. You do not need to remove the access card from your pocket for scanning. Many jackets have a small pocket in an arm sleeve or around the waistline specifically designed for RFID cards.

It is important not to have more than one SKI3 Card on you, as they will all be scanned when you go through the gate and validated for that day. PLEASE keep the card away from credit cards, cell phones, iPods and all other electronic devices that may interfere with signal transmission.

Are SKI3 cards transferable?

No, as always, passes and tickets are not transferable. The lift attendants will see your picture as you pass through the gates.

Can I punch a hole in my SKI3 card?

No. Holes or other physical alterations should not be made to SKI3 Cards, as damage to the RFID antenna or connections in the card could occur. If your SKI3 Card is damaged, a replacement fee may be charged.

Do you have a Military discount?

We are most thankful for all of our military and we do have a special Military Discount Card for qualifying individuals. This card can be attained online soon and will be free. Once you have signed up for the card, it can be loaded online with discounted military tickets which are 50% off Monday- Friday, and 25% off Saturday, Sunday, and during peak periods*. Until the Military Discount Card is available online, please come to the tickets window with your valid military ID designating active or retired status is required, either in the form of a CAC Card, DOD Form 1173, or DD Form 214.
